Yet another caravan of illegal aliens is approaching the border between Mexico and the United States, with its numbers rising at such a rate that it could soon become the largest caravan of its kind ever seen.
As reported by Just The News, this caravan started off at a size of between 6,000 and 11,000 illegals when it departed the city of Tapachula, near the border between Mexico and Guatemala, on Monday. This caravan is being organized and led by a radical amnesty advocate named Luis Garcia Villagran, who has previously tried to organize similar caravans in the past that never came to fruition.
This caravan appears to be the first of his efforts that will succeed, and estimates claim that this particular gathering could grow to over 15,000 illegals. Villagran admitted that he planned the timing of this particular caravan to coincide with the upcoming Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles, California, a multilateral gathering of national leaders in the Western Hemisphere.
“These are countries collapsing from poverty and violence,” Villagran said in an interview. “We strongly urge those who attend the summit … to look at what is happening, and what could happen even more often in Mexico, if something is not done soon.”
Other illegals participating in the caravan pointed to Joe Biden’s promises on the campaign trail that he would provide unlimited, taxpayer-funded benefits to illegals, including free healthcare, free education, and free housing.
“He promised the Haitian community he will help them,” a Haitian illegal migrants told Fox News. “He will recall Title 42. He will help us have real asylum…Now we need him to keep his promise.”
The illegal was referring to the widely successful health policy first implemented by the Trump Administration at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, which gave border patrol officials broad authority to deport all illegals in the name of protecting public health. Although the Biden Administration vowed to repeal Title 42 and let even more illegals in, a federal judge ruled that the administration must leave Title 42 in place and continue enforcing it.
