A caravan of immigrants, seeking asylum, mostly from Honduras, is crossing through Mexico, heading for the U.S. border. President Trump sent troops to defend the border against the “criminals and unknown Middle Easterners” among them.
The shooter also wanted the caravan to be prevented from entering. And he blamed Jews for the “invasion.”
- Among the ideas that have been circulated on social media about the caravan was that Jewish billionaire and Democrat George Soros funded the migration.
- The shooter also believed that HIAS, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, was expected to help settle the refugees once inside the country, as they’ve done countless times in the past for immigrants of all countries. The shooter found this intolerable.
- In other words, the shooter saw the immigration into the U.S. to be orchestrated by Jews.
