On the third day of their long journey toward the United States’ southern border, a massive migrant caravan organized via QR code left the town of Huehuetán in southern Mexico on Monday morning.
The caravan, which is mostly made up of Central Americans, South Americans, and Haitians, is the largest and most organized of its kind this year, with participants registering to join via QR code beginning on October 15.
“Tell Biden we are coming,” one migrant named William from El Salvador told Fox News.
Fox News video showed thousands of migrants, including small children pushed in strollers, walking north about 20 miles north of Tapachula. At the front of the caravan, one migrant carried a large wooden cross, while others carried American flags and signs bearing President Biden’s name.
“President Biden, we need your help,” one migrant said.
