In an interview with Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg yesterday, Judicial Watch “investigator” Chris Farrell claimed that the crisis of unaccompanied Central American children fleeing to the southern U.S. border was a “manufactured crisis” that was “coordinated and prompted” by advocacy groups like the National Council of La Raza in concert with the Obama administration.
Citing the fact that the Obama administration had advance warning of the escalating humanitarian crisis, Farrell suggested that the administration in fact orchestrated it with the help of immigrants’ rights groups.
“My personal opinion is that this was all coordinated and prompted by groups like La Raza going down to Honduras and Guatemala and essentially organizing and promoting this,” he said.
“This wasn’t just spontaneous combustion,” he continued. “This was an effort, a thought-out plan.”
