The immigration crisis is about to experience what is gearing up to be the largest caravan ever. The Washington Examiner reports the group of between 6,000 and 11,000 people have departed Tapachula, a city near Mexico’s border with Guatemala on Monday, according to multiple reports.
The migrants are traveling on foot”from southern Mexico to the United States’s southern border, specifically Texas.” Reportedly the caravan has been organized by a man named Luis Garcia Villagran, who has organized previous, but unsuccessful caravans in 2021 that never arrived at the U.S.
“Unlike Villagran’s previous attempts, this effort is expected to grow to 15,000 participants, which would make it the largest group since the phenomenon of mass migration movements began early on in the Trump administration. The timing of this latest caravan is no coincidence, according to Villagran” adds the Examiner.
The group began its journey Monday, “despite a rainstorm” going “over multiple highway lanes, blocking vehicular traffic from getting through.” Additionally, “the group plans to travel along Mexico’s eastern coast to Texas, where Gov. Greg Abbott claimed in an interview with the Washington Examiner in March that his deployment of 10,000 National Guard soldiers and state troopers under a border security operation had deterred caravans from coming to Texas.”
Villagran said the group was not stopped by the Mexican military, federal immigration officials, and state police when they got to a checkpoint in the state of Chiapas.
The Examiner adds “leaders from across the Western Hemisphere will meet in Los Angeles this week for the Summit of the Americas, where the Biden administration is expected to announce new cooperation pacts to stem and address migration issues across the hemisphere.”
Allegedly the “pacts will likely send a message to migrants that they will not be permitted to travel to the U.S. or other countries. However, migrants told reporters that they have grown frustrated with Biden’s promise as a candidate to reform the asylum system, as well as his administration’s ban on asylum-seekers during the coronavirus pandemic.”

Over 600 ‘gotaway’ illegal immigrants disappeared into the U.S. in just one weekend
A video shows just one group of over 150 migrants crossing illegally into Eagle Pass, TX. FOX LA’s Bill Melugin reports the group is virtually all adults.
The group of adults crossing was merely one moment in time “as the sun came up” but that scenario occurs non-stop. The Border Patrol in the Del Rio sector explains that an unbelievably high amount of over 600 individuals simply are described as “gotaways.”
That means not only are their whereabouts within the United States completely unknown, but so are their identities. They could be human traffickers, drug smugglers, victims, terrorists, kidnapped children, etc.
Not only did the 600 plus people disappear into the country, but the high number was in just one weekend. News also broke of the arrest of a rapist with a forcible sodomy conviction of a migrant who illegally crossed the border in Virginia.
Another huge single group of 150+ migrants crossed illegally into Eagle Pass, TX as the sun came up this morning. Almost all single adults.
