The leader of a massive migrant caravan walking through Mexico has announced it will unite with other groups on Nov. 18 to bring more than 10,000 illegal immigrants across the southern border of the U.S.
The caravan’s leader, Irineo Mujica, already leads more than 3,000 migrants who have been traveling from the southern border of Mexico since October. The new announcement has concerned officials, who feel trapped from doing anything to stop the movement under President Joe Biden’s open border policies.
In September, up to 15,000 migrants crossed the Rio Grande River and camped under the Del Rio International Bridge. The new movement could seek to repeat the scene along another part of the Texas border.
Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has talked tough in recent weeks about arresting those who cross the border illegally. But 10,000 migrants could easily overwhelm even the Lone Star State’s resources without help from the federal government.
The nation could easily stop any concern with the National Guard or other military presence. So far, Biden has been more likely to bring National Guard troops to surround the Capitol Building rather than show up to protect the nation’s border.
But as you’ll see in the video, the growing crowd is massive. We’ll need a strong level of border protection to make a difference, and so far it’s not happening. Watch it now for the full details.
