NBC News’ Gadi Schwartz reported that the majority of the migrant caravan that is headed to the United States southern border is men who are not seeking asylum, which flies in the face of the narrative that some in the media are attempting to paint that the caravan consists of mainly women and children.

“This is the inner sanctum of the shelter, so 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…are men,” Schwartz said while reporting live from a camp that members of the caravan set up in Tijuana, Mexico.

“You have people on one side that point and say there are women and children here, and that is true, and then there are others who point and say these are men who are trying to cross the border, and that’s true, too,” Schwartz said.

“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,” Schwartz reported.

Schwartz reported that between 500 to 600 men were in line waiting for food at a local food bank in Tijuana earlier.
