By now you’ve heard some form of the liberal media narrative about the caravan, which ranges from “mostly women & children” to “no known criminals, just desperate people seeking asylum,” but each day seems to bring with it a story that shreds a page of those talking points. Case-in-point:
#USBP agents from El Centro Sector arrested an MS-13 gang member from Honduras last weekend. The 29-year-old man told agents he had traveled to the US border with a large group of people from Central America, with the intent of entering illegally: https://t.co/pIdx6V4KaQ pic.twitter.com/lIuHrj6Fe6

@CBP @CBPElCentro reports detaining a member of the Central American caravan, who self-identified himself as a member of MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha 13, an international crime organization. His name is Jose Villalobos-Jobel, the press release says. More: https://t.co/KbMaLmjsQp

From the Washington Times:
Jose Villalobos-Jobel, 29, from Honduras, was nabbed just after 6 p.m. near the Calexico border crossing.
He told agents he had hoped to sneak in and remain in the U.S. illegally, the Border Patrol said. Agents said he admitted his gang membership in a short interview.
Somebody alert those members of the media who were assisting Dems in saying warnings about the caravan were a “political stunt”!

Jim Acosta is among those journos whose attempts to downplay concerns about the caravan have not aged well.
