Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch is once again doing the heavy lifting.

Judicial Watch deployed a team of investigative reporters to Guatemala to find out the truth about the caravan of mostly Central American migrants marching to the U.S. border.

According to Judicial Watch, the “elaborately planned” migrant caravan is full of thousands of angry military-aged males from all over the world, MS-13 gang members and human smugglers.

The migrant caravan marching northbound through Central America is an “elaborately planned” movement that’s benefiting human smugglers and bringing disturbing numbers of violent gang members and other criminal elements through Guatemala, according to government sources in the capital city. “MS-13 gang members have been detained and coyotes (human smugglers) are joining the march with clients who pay to get smuggled into the United States,” a Guatemalan official told Judicial Watch. People from Asian countries waiting to get smuggled into the U.S. through Central America are also integrating with poor Hondurans in the caravan, a high-level Guatemalan government source confirmed. Among them are nationals of Bangladesh, a south Asian Islamic country that’s well known as a recruiting ground for terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda Indian Subcontinent (AQIS). “There are lots of dirty businesses associated with this,” Guatemalan authorities told Judicial Watch. “There’s lots of human trafficking.”

The watchdog group is now exclusively reporting that Guatemalan authorities have taken 7 unaccompanied minors into custody. The children were being trafficked by human smugglers.

The smugglers were arrested and there is a criminal investigation ongoing.

Democrats and their stenographers in the fake news media don’t care about these poor children being trafficked.

Guatemalan authorities have taken these children into custody — and the children are being given medical check-ups, food, water, & so on. Smugglers have already been arrested, and the broader investigation into criminal activity within the caravan(s) is still ongoing.
