    Louie seems to be the only politician that has any interest in this much asked question right here on USMB!

    Who's financing the Honduras migrant caravan of illegal immigrants, with as many as 10,000 snaking their way into illegally entering the U.S.?

    Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas has a sensible suggestion for finding out: using the RICO statutes. According to the Washington Examiner, citing Fox News, Gohmert said:

    We have got to have the DOJ investigate where the funding is coming from to send these thousands and thousands of people to the U.S. ... You can use RICO to go after them.

    The question, which the incurious media show no sign of wanting to answer, is worth asking, given the expense the taxpayers will be saddled with as thousands of them openly climb over border fences, dare border officials to fire on them to stop them, worm their way in through asylum legal maneuvering, or put up big sob stories with photos of mothers and crying children as a means to get in and get the benefit packages. It's a certainty that quite a few will get in, unless President Trump can be genuinely effective at stopping them, and right now that's not a certainty.

    These poverty stricken, destitute people who all managed to flee their homeland for a 2 month excursion at the same time are not being backed by anyone.

    This is why progs can't win an election to save their souls.

    You have to ask,

    Who benefits?

    The only one benefiting from this caravan and using it for his and R's purpose, much like with the DNC and Podesta stolen emails and wikileaks, is TRUMP.... that's a fact.

    Who actually caused it, should be investigated.

    If Crazy Louie is that concerned, that alone should tell you it's a stupid question.
