As the Central American ‘migrant caravan’ stalls in Tijuana with thousands of workers waiting to claim asylum in the United States, CNN may have found the true cause of those seeking to flee their home countries; saying “climate change” directly contributed to the crisis.
“One suspected reason for the migrant caravan is climate change. Years-long drought in parts of Honduras means crops are failing and farmers are leaving,” posted CNN on their official social media account.

“Overlooked is this factor: climate change,” writes CNN. “The ‘dry corridor’ of Central America, which includes parts of Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua, has been hit with an unusual drought for the last five years. Crops are failing. Starvation is lurking. More than two million people in the region are at risk for hunger, according to an August report from the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.”
CARAVAN CRISIS: DHS Confirms More than ‘500 Criminals’ Traveling with ‘Migrant Caravan’
The Department of Homeland Security issued a stark warning regarding the approaching ‘migrant caravan’ Monday; confirming at least ‘500 criminals’ are traveling with the Central American immigrants.
DHS officials made the stunning announcement during a conference call with reporters Monday afternoon; saying “most of the caravan members are not women and children” but are comprised of mostly single adult males or teenagers.
“More than 500 criminals are traveling with the migrant caravan that’s massed on the other side of a San Diego border crossing,” writes Fox News.
“All legal options are on the table and we have been negotiating with all our partners in central America with ways to deal with the caravan,” said one official.
Unfortunately, some members of the caravan are purposely causing disruptions at our border ports of entry. There is a legal and illegal way to enter the US. We have deployed additional forces to protect our border. We will enforce all our laws.
