A new video showed thousands of migrants on open train cars in Mexico heading towards the US southern border.
The video, posted by Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins and independent journalist Auden Cabello, shows the migrants from all around the world headed toward the US border from Mexico on a packed train.
Migrants can be heard on the FerroMex train out of Zacatecas cheering while hanging off the sides of the cars, video shows.
The video comes despite the US sending a stern message to migrants: “do not come.”
Just days earlier, Auden Cabello posted a video of a train loaded with migrants in a town just south of Zacatecas, “Irapuato, Guanajuato: Another train full of migrants departed this morning. One major route leads to Juarez/El Paso.”
Border patrols are now overwhelmed by the number of illegal crossings.
Agents at Ajo, Arizona, saw 2,000 illegal crossings a day for several days straight, forcing them to release them because shelters were packed.
Caravans heading toward the southern border included families with infants and children and unaccompanied minors.
A video taken earlier this week in the Darien Gap by freelance photographer Federico Rio posted by New York Times reporter Julie Turkewitz:
“Last year, 250,000 ppl crossed the Darién jungle in a desperate attempt to make it to the US. This year, that number has already reached 360k. @federicorios and I have returned again & again to the jungle, trying to understand this flow. Some anecdotes from our latest reporting.”
Border Hawk correspondent Efraín González posted a video of the tail end of one migrant train route at the US Mexico border.
Fox News reporter Bill Melugin posted a video of migrants crossing the Rio Grande into Eagle Pass:
“NEW: Our drone team witnessing more broad daylight illegal crossings into Eagle Pass, TX this afternoon. Sadly, a 10-year-old boy drowned here while crossing with his mom yesterday. He’s one of countless who have drowned here over past couple years, w/ little to no attention.”
As Fox News reported:
“Officials with the administration have cited the plan as a way to curb the flow of illegal immigrants at the southern border. The plan would also include the implementation of ankle bracelets to track their location, for migrants who are actually caught. But the administration sued Texas to force it to remove a barrier the state floated in the Rio Grande in an effort to curb the historic level of illegal migration. The Biden administration also sued Arizona for building a barrier out of shipping containers on its border with Mexico.”
