A Second Caravan? New Wave of Migrants and Deportees Stampede to Join March to U.S.

According to The Huffington Post, a human rights group by the name of "Pueblo Sin Fronteras" is providing aid to a second caravan of migrants marching to the U.S. through Mexico from crime-ridden Honduras.

Fox News has also commented on this second wave of approximately 1,000 migrants from Honduras, who have embarked to join the massive caravan approaching the U.S. border. The initial caravan has been estimated by some to be as large as 10,000 migrants being aided by 18-wheeler trucks and NGO's on their journey through Central America to illegally immigrate to the United States. Footage by a Fox News crew investigating on site "showed trucks handing out food, water and toilet paper to the migrants."

As recently reported here at MRCTV, many of these migrants are people who have previously been deported. One such man, Anthony Fuentes, has reportedly been deported six times, telling the Washington Post, "They catch you, and you try to get back."

While readers may think that this new wave of 1,000 does not sound particularly large,Fox News added that the crowd has grown from "less than 200 participants" in just over a week, and may have the same exponential growth factor as the initial migrant caravan.

MRCTV noted in an article this morning that local news in Mexico has claimed to see evidence of unvetted migrants all the way from Bangladesh, vindicating President Trump's widely mocked claim that there are "Middle Easterners" infiltrating among the migrant caravans.

Yesterday when we were traveling through Guatemala, we noticed people from El Salvador and even people from Bangladesh,” he continued. “Can you imagine what they had to do to get here? They infiltrated themselves in this caravan and tried to cross with the crowd. That would have benefited them greatly.

As both of these caravans march toward the Southwest U.S. border, and with the midterm elections only a short ways away, the immigration debates will likely reach a fever pitch among news outlets and voters themselves.
