Illegal Migrants Heading to Texas Borders, Numbers more than 2000, possible entry via El Paso

El Paso, TX: El Paso, Texas is supposedly going to be reached by a new migrant caravan of 2,000 people in the next few days as it travels north toward the US border.

There was a stampede of pedestrians in southern Mexico on Monday, according to videos shared online.

Using a bullhorn, a figure who appears to be leading the throng chants “A la frontera,” which translates to “To the border.”

Their Spanish-language proclamation read: “We are not criminals, we are international workers.”

According to Border Report, as a result of housing hundreds of migrants attempting to enter the United States, border shelters run by churches are getting ready to receive the group.

According to Rev. Francisco Bueno Guillen, head of the Casa del Migrante shelter in the Mexican border city of Juarez, “We are in contact with people and personnel in migrant shelters in south Mexico,” and he informed the television station this.

They noticed a large influx of people into the country not long ago, and more are arriving, he added. “And yes, Juarez will be the destination.”

He mentioned that at least 2,000 migrants, who departed from Chiapas, Mexico, are expected to reach El Paso within the next several days.

Migrants traveling to the United States were the focus of the so-called “Migrant’s Via Crusis,” an organization formed in Chiapas by Mexican activists.

According to Border Report, it departed from Tapachula on Monday, which is located on the Guatemalan border.

Several hundred more foreign nationals have reportedly camped overnight behind a convenience shop in Chihuahua City, which is around 230 miles from El Paso.

The Casa del Migrante shelter, according to Guillen, is already at capacity.

He said that it had increased from 20% capacity a few weeks ago to 75% capacity on Monday.

To his southern colleagues, Bishop Mark J. Seitz of the El Paso Catholic Diocese has assured them that the diocese will “continue to marshal all available resources and be aware of the trends.”

According to KTSM, 200 troops of the Tactical Border Force have been deployed to El Paso by two planes of the Texas National Guard.

A representative from the Texas National Guard informed the news outlet that the unit is highly trained in handling cases of civil disobedience.

Their deployment follows a few days of unrest at the El Paso border when migrants tore down concertina wire and trampled Border Patrol officials.

Last Thursday, nine migrants were prosecuted by Texas police for their involvement in the breach.

According to a state government source who spoke with The Post, the migrants are facing charges including assaulting members of the Guard, inciting a riot, and property damage exceeding $2,500.

Hundreds more others are also anticipated to be charged with misdemeanor or criminal charges by Texas officials, according to the source.

The source claims that federal authorities are required to turn over the accused to the state.
