When MSNBC crossed live to a reporter in the midst of the migrant caravan, they probably weren’t expecting this response.

 

Gadi Schwartz was on the ground in Tijuana, Mexico meeting with some of the migrants when MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle asked:

“They listen to the President who says, it’s not women and children. It’s stone, cold criminals. So, my first question is, you’re in that tent camp. Give us the profile of who is there mostly and what are they looking for.”

Schwartz responded: “You’re going to see a lot of families here, a lot of women and children, but the truth is, the majority of the people that are part of this caravan, especially outside, the majority of them are men…

“From what we’ve seen the majority are actually men. And some of these men have not articulated that need for asylum, instead they have talked about going to the United States for a better life and to find work.”
