In 2016, George Soros committed to spending $500 million to help migrants

In 2016, liberal billionaire George Soros wrote about his intentions to “earmark $500 million” to help migrants, refugees and their host communities. 

“I have decided to earmark $500 million for investments that specifically address the needs of migrants, refugees and host communities,” Soros wrote in The Wall Street Journal in a column published on Sept. 20, 2016.

“I will invest in startups, established companies, social-impact initiatives and businesses founded by migrants and refugees themselves. Although my main concern is to help migrants and refugees arriving in Europe, I will be looking for good investment ideas that will benefit migrants all over the world,” he wrote.

“We will also work closely with organizations such as the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the International Rescue Committee to establish principles to guide our investments,” Soros continued.

Major donor

Mainstream media sources denounced the recent speculation about possible Soros involvement with the latest Central American migrant caravan as “implausible,” a “conspiracy theory,” and “lies.”

But in rereading Soros’ own stated intentions, is it really so implausible?

Soros has donated billions to his Open Society Foundations, making it the third largest such philanthropic foundation in the world.

The OSF has a presence in dozens of countries, working to influence and promote leftist policies across the world.

Unseating Trump

Soros has made it very clear he wants to undermine this presidential administration.

Soros poured enormous amounts of money into Hillary Clinton’s campaign, along with other Democrats.

Soros does not limit his “influence” to his home country of Hungary, or the United States either.

He has spent significant money trying to influence Israel’s government as well.

Only last year, Israel’s foreign ministry stated Soros was “continuously undermining Israel’s democratically elected governments.”

He was doing so by supporting organizations that both defamed the Jewish state as well as trying to deny Israel from defending itself.

This is a man who wants his leftist ideas to be spread across the entire world.

And, if Hillary Clinton had won, that is exactly what would have happened.
