Cooper was attempting to dispute the comments from President Donald Trump about the possible threat some of the migrants might mean to American citizens if allowed through the border.
“Now, keeping them honest,” Cooper said, “whatever you may think about immigration policy and border enforcement, there simply is no good evidence the caravan is a danger to this country, imminent or otherwise.
“The president, as you know, has claimed there are ‘criminals and unknown Middle-Easterners’ in the caravan, he’s also suggested that ISIS members could be in it,” he explained.
“There’s no proof of anything, there’s no proof of anything, but they could very well be,” said the president in the recorded clip.
Cooper neglected to inform his viewers about the violence that has occurred from the caravan deliberately disobeying orders from Mexican authorities.
On Monday, one migrant was killed in a confrontation between caravan members and the police. Others threw stones and bottles at officers who tried to prevent them from continuing their march.
