CHUCK HOLTON (NRATV CORRESPONDENT): Now it’s undoubtedly awfully convenient that these huge caravans are forming now and are being speedily transported north just in time for the November 6 election. But the real story here is the nexus we’re finding between left-wing groups from the United States, Soros-funded groups in Latin America and the Venezuelan government. See the [Brett] Kavanaugh confirmation clown show a couple of weeks ago really fired up the Republican base and it may have hurt the Democrats’ chances to retake the House and the Senate on November 6. So these groups are falling back on an issue that played well for them earlier in the year and that’s the family separations at the border. But for a party that’s supposedly so very concerned about Russian attempts to influence our elections in 2016 and that dreaded word collusion we've heard so much about in the press, it’s telling that a bevy of left-wing groups are partnering with a Hungarian-born billionaire and the Venezuelan government to try to influence the 2018 midterms by sending Honduran migrants north in the thousands.
HOLTON: This is the same playbook we’ve seen in Europe. It’s an invasion under the guise of migration.
