8. "Could this caravan have been organized by trumpist supporters to embarrass us and/or as fodder for

the trumpist base to get all riled up?"


No. Stop this. Think through what this would actually look like. It's bad enough that there are parts of our world so difficult and terrible that people are willing to walk hundreds of miles through countries that don't want them to try and get to the United States, without ignorant speculation that these are somehow organized by Trump supporters. Trump already has support. There are much easier ways to whip them up than...what, hiring people on the ground in Honduras to find people willing to drop everything and walk to the U.S. to make a political point? Jesus.
