Vice President Mike Pence is weighing in on a caravan of Central America migrants traveling through Mexico.

FOX’s Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

President Trump has been criticized for tweeting there are “unknown Middle Easterners” traveling with the massive caravan, but Vice President Mike Pence told “Washington Post Live” it’s hard to believe Middle Easterners would not be in a crowd of 7,000 people.  And he said the President of Honduras told him caravan was organized by leftist groups in Honduras:

(VP Pence): “Financed by Venezuela, and sent north to challenge our sovereignty.”

Organizers deny there are any Middle Eastern travelers.  The caravan is still more than a thousand miles away from the Texas border.
