Fox News’ Shepard Smith dismissed the notion that a caravan of migrants headed to the U.S.-Mexico border were part of an “invasion,” pushing back against a term espoused by President Trump and others to describe the group.

On his show Monday, Smith said the charged language surrounding the caravan has to do with the coming midterm elections and stressed that the urgency behind the warnings is overblown. He said Fox News forecasts the migrant group is more than two months away from arriving in the U.S. as of Tuesday, adding, “if any of them actually come here.”

“But tomorrow is one week before the midterm election, which is what all of this is about,” Smith said. “There is no invasion. No one’s coming to get you. There is nothing at all to worry about.”

The issue of the caravan has attracted some conspiracy theories, including one in which liberal billionaire George Soros and his foundation financially backed the caravan.

The suspected gunman behind the deadly mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday, Robert Bowers, had posted anti-Semitic content on social media and shared posts that referred to the migrants as a “third world caravan” and “invaders.”

President Trump has also used the term “invasion” to characterize the group of migrants as he warned they would not be accepted into the U.S.

"Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border," Trump tweeted Monday. "Please go back, you will not be admitted into the United States unless you go through the legal process. This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!"

The Trump administration announced Monday that 5,200 soldiers will be sent to fortify the U.S.-Mexican border ahead of the arrival of the caravan of migrants, which now includes more than 6,000 people.
