You made the claim and have failed to back it up.
I didn't cite a specific article because the sole point I was trying to provide evidence for was the existence of the caravan.

This is not true. I'm willing to assume the best motivations for the vast majority of those in the caravan. Soros believes in open borders, and not only in the U.S., so at least part of his motivation is clear. I'm perfectly willing to accept that he ALSO would like to simple help asylum seekers.

No. You need to reread the exchange. You claimed there was "no evidence". Also, you're ignoring the "as well" at the end of that sentence.

Maybe I'm confusing you with another poster. If so, my apologies and you can just ignore the point. As far as the rest, I really do not care if you are convinced or if you think my reasons are valid. I don't expect to convince anyone on the se boards of anything that is not part of liberal doctrine. But if you don't think the NYT link (which I intentionally chose) that has four headlines talking about the caravan is not proof, or at least VERY strong evidence, that the caravan exists, I'm not sure anything would convince you. Shrug.
