Filmmaker Ami Horowitz traveled to Oaxaca in southern Mexico to visit the migrant caravan in order to uncover the truth.
The migrant caravan has received a lot of attention from the media.
The mainstream media coverage generally included sad stories of migrants who are desperately trying to escape violence and poverty.
The left claimed that the migrant caravan consists of families with women and children who are hoping for a “normal” life.
Horowitz, however, came to a different conclusion.
“Despite the framing of the caravan as being full of women and children, the reality on the ground is quite different. Approximately 90 to 95 percent of the migrants were male,” Horowitz said in a Twitter video.

“The migrants, mostly from Honduras, say they are fleeing violence and poverty, and include women and children,” wrote BBC in October.
Given that the caravan consists of over 90 percent men, it’s safe to say that BBC’s statement, along with many others made by the establishment media, is quite misleading.
Last month, The Guardian wrote, “We do know that many migrants have said they are fleeing terrible gang violence, with some fearing for their lives.”
According to Horowitz video, the migrants aren’t leaving their countries because of extreme violence but, because they are planning on seeking employment after they cross the U.S. border.
“The major narrative being pushed by the press has been that the migrants are leaving Honduras because they are facing extreme violence and that their lives are under constant threat,” Horowitz said.
Horowitz asked several migrants “Why are you coming to America?”
“To get a job,” one responded. “To work,” said another.
The filmmaker’s video clearly shows that despite’s the mainstream media’s claims, these migrants are after American jobs. They aren’t “fleeing violence” nor are they mostly “women and children.”
In addition, this video is a proof that the establishment media had no intention of exposing the truth about the migrant caravan, probably because it goes against the left’s agenda.
