Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that a migrant caravan making its way from the south of Mexico to the U. S. border “must be stopped” – as the numbers of migrants in the massive group are said to have gone above 4,000.
“I hope everyone is watching the MASSIVE Caravan pouring through Mexico and headed to our Country,” Trump said in a statement. “This must be stopped before they reach our Border, or before.”
The caravan is on its fifth day of travel, having set off on Saturday with about 2,000 migrants and already broken through a line of Mexican interior enforcement. The organizers have used QR codes to organize migrants – marking the latest attempt to form a caravan of migrants to travel to the U. S. border
Organizer Luis Garcia said that the caravan is approximately 4,000 strong with more than 400 children between the ages 7-18, 100 babies under the age of one. It also included 65 pregnant women (three more than eight months pregnant) and four wheelchair bound migrants.
The caravan consists of migrants from Central and South America as well as Haiti and other countries. Thousands of migrants predominantly from Haiti overwhelmed the Del Rio Sector last month — with 15,000 migrants camped under the bridge at one point.
