HUIXTLA, Mexico (AP) — A growing migrant caravan set out early Wednesday after a day of rest on its trek across southern Mexico.
About 2,000 migrants had walked out of the southern city of Tapachula near the Guatemala border on Saturday. While the multitude is challenging to count, it appeared significantly larger Wednesday and its leaders estimated its size at 4,000.
“The caravan is like a magnet, it goes sucking up people, migrants who had been in the towns (of coastal Chiapas) are joining,” said Irineo Mújica, an immigration activist with the organization People without Borders.
One of them was Bayron Zavala, a Nicaraguan migrant, who hearing that the caravan was advancing slowly, got on a bicycle and caught up with them in Huixtla. He said he would walk with them “as far as God gives us the strength ... if possible, continue to the United States.”
Without any issue, the migrants passed a customs, immigration and military checkpoint where authorities typically seize drugs and look for human smugglers.
Other groups that have walked out of Tapachula this year have numbered in the hundreds. All were dissolved by Mexican authorities, sometimes with excessive force. Those groups were composed mostly of Haitian migrants. This caravan is primarily made up of Central Americans.
The National Guard has not tried to intervene since it attempted to keep the migrants from Tapachula on Saturday. There were scuffles and a child was injured.

Don’t they know how racist and horrible the USA is? And don’t the liberals realize they are super racists saying their “nations of color” are backward s holes?
Walking my ASS
Do they have camels?
Ain’t no caravan without camels.
You don't understand--the free stuff out weighs all that stuff. When we get here, we will be happy to have all of you suckers paying for our health care, housing, education, ebt cards--If you don't give us everything we want, we will call you white supremacists.
Some honest reporter (FOX has a few) should do a random study and find out how many criminals, how many drug addicts, how many gang members, how many killers... are walking into our country.
And who’s paying for their new shoes...
I’m really nervous about what will come of this insanity when they get to the border, where Governor Abbot has drawn a red line. Trouble brews, and whose side will the Feds take?
The Biden Brigade!
Uncle Joe will give me everything I need.
I guess the same people who wash and iron their new clothes, cater their meals, provide shelter and other necessities - after all, it is tough caravanning on foot for a couple thousand miles when you don’t have money to get the proper hiking wear.
Phones - did I forget to mention phones?
my favorite story today:
Jack Posobiec claims Kamala Harris is referring to Joe Biden as the Titanic behind his back and that Dr. Jill Biden was asking if it was possible to remove a sitting VP over the past weekend.
