Newsweek Captures Journey of Migrant Caravan with Photos
I Traveled with the Migrant Caravan- You Have No Idea What They’ve Have Been Through
Newsweek ran a story by Spencer Platt, award-winning photographer with Getty Images, to document the story of the migrant caravan.
Platt wanted to capture the struggles of those in the caravan who have traveled thousands of miles in order to escape the violence of their homeland. By Platt’s estimates, twenty-five percent of the families were traveling with their small children through this physically exhausting trek, including family members pushing their elders in wheelchairs.
The article could be seen below which I highly recommend to read. Posts written by me in reference to President Trump and the caravan can also be seen below.

At any costs, President Trump wants funding for his border wall, even if it means tear gassing children and ordering a government shutdown as the migrant caravan reaches the U.S. – Mexico border.
President Trump’s executive order requiring migrants to seek asylum through an “official port of entry” has been blocked by the federal courts until a hearing is scheduled on this matter for December 19, 2018.
