Thousands of migrants from Latin America left a Mexico City shelter late last week to begin the final leg of their journey toward the U.S.-Mexico border.

The caravan, numbering some 2,400 individuals, precedes an even larger group of asylum seekers eager to start a new life in America.

Per PJ Media:
 

Friday morning, 1,890 of them were seen boarding buses and semi trucks, courtesy of the state of Querétaro, Mexico.

"Each state seems to be providing buses and in this case, semi trucks to help them move forward," Fox News' Griff Jenkins reported. This group of migrants is headed toward Piedras Negras, a Mexican border town across the Rio Grande from Eagle Pass, Texas, according to Jenkins. They expect to arrive at the border within four or five days.

 

Reportedly, the number of asylum seekers south of the Mexican border has reached over 12,000; some of them intend to pursue refugee status in Mexico.

The new policy of handing out humanitarian visas began on January 17 in response to the new caravan of primarily Honduran migrants who left their home country and headed towards the Mexican border on January 15. Officials originally estimated the caravan’s size at about 2,000. Mexico now claims the caravan’s population swelled to over 12,000 migrants,  according to local media and Breitbart Texas sources.
