The caravan is benefiting us, yet it has been largely funded by NGOs and persons that are for a Left wing cause. It makes me wonder... why would they fund something like this close to the mid-terms when it seems clear that it won't benefit us?
Well, I have also heard it said that it benefits the GOP until it doesn't. Its value is largely dependent on whether or not Pres. Trump properly responds to it. That seems to be the case so far, and honestly, a very proper response could further affect the midterms negatively for the left.
I am thinking this might not necessarily be a political play alone.
It's just everyone who wanted to come but did not come during the hot summer months making a play for it.
Why would you "wonder why" when the article clearly states the reasons? That reason, according to what's cited in your own article, is that Republicans use "overblown" and misleading statements about immigration to feed their base. Because of that, rather than get into screaming matches on immigration, the memo encourages—and I quote—"more fruitful" use of their time.
Why is that conservatives on this site are so easily refuted...just by quoting their own sources?
