MIGRANT STAREDOWN: Who do you think will win — leftists or Trump?

Three thousand migrants just crossed the Honduran-Guatemala border en route to the United States. President Donald Trump threatened both countries yesterday with pulling all financial aid if the two countries don't do something to stop it.

Every year we give about $100 million to Guatemala with a good majority going to their military and security services. Over the last two years we've given Honduras over $260 million. Again, a vast majority goes to keep their military and security apparatus up and running. In short, if we stop writing those checks, both the Honduran and Guatemalan governments are going to have some very big problems.

FLASHBACK: Trump send troops to stop migrant 'caravan' headed for US — but here's who's funding the migrants

It's such a big issue that the Honduran president made a public address to his country yesterday. The foreign ministry also made a statement saying the government:

Urges the Hondurans taking part in this irregular mobilization not to be used by a movement that is clearly political.

Political? What does that mean? Well, it turns out that this caravan is different from the one coming from Mexico back in April. That previous caravan had serious backing in the form of manpower, organization and money from George Soros. It was a strategic political stunt that — at the time — dominated the media. That caravan was directed at causing waves here in the United States, but this current one isn't directed at us at all. This is all about radical left-wing politics in Honduras.

As the 3,000 migrants crossed into Guatemala, the Guatemalan government detained one man. His name is Bartolo Fuentes, and he's the organizer of this entire charade that — just like back in April — is beginning to get massive coverage... and even a tweet by President Trump. And this is exactly what Fuentes and his merry band of leftists want.

Fuentes is the ex-deputy of the Honduran Liberty and Refoundation Party. Their members are supporters of the former Honduran president that was ousted by the military in a coup back in 2009. Saying they're leftist doesn't quite give it justice. They wanted to form a partnership with both Hugo Chavez and the Castros to create some kind of South American Communist mega alliance. The former president was ousted on the eve of a special election where he wanted to rewrite the constitution to make sweeping changes. His followers, like this current caravan organizer, never forgot. They've been staging political stunts ever since to try and undermine the more right-leaning government.

They want a showdown at the U.S. border. And you better believe they want the cameras rolling when it happens.

The use of these "migrant caravans" is only going to get worse. Leftists like Soros, and even this group in Honduras, have no qualms at all with using men, women and children in incredibly dangerous situations to further their politics. They don't really care about these people. They're doing the same thing that Hamas is doing with the Palestinians in Gaza.

They want a showdown at the U.S. border. And you better believe they want the cameras rolling when it happens.
