Massive Migrant Caravan Heading Towards US Border: ‘Tell Biden We Are Coming’

A massive migrant caravan is heading for the U.S. southern border, Fox News reports.

This is the single largest and most organized of its kind this year.

Participants are “registering to join” the caravan by using a QR code.

The caravan is made up of mostly Central Americans, South Americans and Haitians.

It reportedly left the town of Huehuetán in the south of Mexico on the third day of their long trek toward the U.S.

“Tell Biden we are coming,” one migrant named William from El Salvador told Fox News.

Migrants carried American flags and signs with President Biden’s name.

“President Biden, we need your help,” one migrant said.

Video footage captured shows thousands of migrants, including small children.

Unlike the caravans that made headlines in 2019, this one will take considerably longer. The Mexican government has banned truckers from letting migrants hitch a ride, so they will have to walk the entire 2,500 miles to the Texas border.

Mexican officials told Fox News that there are more than 3,000 migrants in the caravan, which left Tapachula on the border with Guatemala on Saturday.

Within hours of their trek, the flood of migrants encountered a wall of Mexican interior police wearing protective gear and wielding shields. But the security did not hold, as migrants forced their way through the blockade and continued on their way to try and seek entry into the U.S.

Customs and Border Protection announced Friday that there had been more than 1.7 million migrant encounters in fiscal year 2021, breaking records. Additionally, there were more than 192,000 encounters in September alone – a slight decrease from the more than 200,000 encountered in July and August, but a sign that the border crisis that has dogged the Biden administration is far from over. The administration also had to deal with a massive Haitian migrant surge in September, and fears that more surges could be on the way.

The Biden administration has blamed root causes like poverty, corruption and violence in Central America elsewhere and has pledged massive investments of taxpayer money to try and combat those root causes.
