See Who's Funding the Migrant Caravan and What's In It For Them
“At the president’s direction I spoke to President [Juan Orlando] Hernandez of Honduras,” said Pence, “he told me that the caravan that’s now making its way through Mexico headed for the southern border was organized by leftist organizations and financed by Venezuela.”
“And the Democrats maybe?” added the president. “And the Democrats?”
“It sounds like you’re teasing about that but where’s the proof that Democrats are paying for this caravan?” CNN’s Jim Acosta asked. “Why would they pay for a caravan to come up two weeks before the election?”
“You know what?” Trump replied. “You’re gonna find out, and we’re gonna see. Well, maybe they made a bad mistake too. We’re gonna find out about that.”
Here's the video of Pence's revelation:

Mexican officials told Fox News earlier they suspect the caravan is politically motivated.
Over 14,000 people have joined the caravan. Moving them more than 2,000 miles to the U.S. border involves exorbitant fees in food, water, medical care, and transportation.
If the caravan is a political weapon, it represents a new and innovative way to undermine America's political structure.
