(GoRealNewsNow.com) – A huge number of illegal Third World immigrants are gathering in Central America to storm or waltz through America’s Southern Border, with one massive new caravan forming in Mexico just before a visit by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
A large group of illegals, numbering around 6,000, commenced their journey on foot from southern Mexico toward the United States on Sunday, The Daily Caller reports.
The group, primarily composed of families with young children, hails from various Latin American nations, notably Cuba and Venezuela.
They began their trek from Tapachula, a city in Mexico situated near the Guatemalan border.
Despite their considerable number, security forces in the region reportedly did not intervene to stop their progression.
This caravan is notable for being the largest of its kind in over a year.
“We’ve been waiting here for three or four months without an answer. Hopefully with this march there will be a change and we can get the permission we need to head north,” said Cristian Rivera, a Honduran migrant traveling separately from his wife and child, as cited by the AP.
Antony Blinken, along with Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas and White House Homeland Security Advisor Liz Sherwood-Randall, are set to meet with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Wednesday.
According to a statement by the US Department of State, their discussions will focus on the challenges of “unprecedented irregular migration” and border security.
A similar event occurred in June 2022, coinciding with President Joe Biden’s hosting of the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles.
During this summit, the US and various Latin American countries introduced the Los Angeles Declaration on Migration and Protection.
Notably, Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua did not participate in this declaration.
In May, President López Obrador agreed to accept migrants from Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua who were denied entry into the US.
On Friday, he reaffirmed his commitment to managing the surge of migrants.
However, he also urged the US to resolve its tensions with Cuba and to increase development aid to the countries from which these migrants originate.
The AP reports that US authorities have detained 10,000 migrants daily at the southwest border, with over two million detentions in the past two fiscal years.
