President Trump has pointed to a massive caravan of migrants trekking north through Mexico as a major issue in the upcoming midterm elections.
But when Election Day rolls around, on November 6, the caravan could still be somewhere in the middle of Mexico, depending on the group’s current location, how fast it’s been traveling and how long it’s taken other groups of migrants to cross the country.
Yesterday, the caravan of thousands of people was in Huixtla, Mexico, about 50 miles from the Mexico-Guatemala border, where many of the caravan’s members skirted authorities and crossed in rafts.
Below is the latest map showing the location of the migrant caravan:
CARAVAN CHAOS: Migrant Caravan Swells to 7,000, Trump to CUT AID
The “migrant caravan” of undocumented workers from Central America swelled to 7,000 people over the weekend; crossing into Mexico as they slowly made their way towards the United States’ southern border.
According to the Daily Mail, Mexican authorities have been ineffective in cracking down on the caravan as they marched north, with President Trump vowing to cut-off aid to several nations should the migrants reach the United States.
“Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them,” tweeted the President.

“Every time you see a Caravan, or people illegally coming, or attempting to come, into our Country illegally, think of and blame the Democrats for not giving us the votes to change our pathetic Immigration Laws,” wrote the President last week.
CARAVAN CHAOS: Migrants Call Trump ‘ANTICHRIST,’ Say President ‘Going to Hell’
Immigrants taking part in the “migrant caravan” slowly making its way towards the US border unloaded on President Trump Monday; calling the Commander-in-Chief the “antichrist” after he threatened to crackdown on the immigrants should they reach America.
“Donald Trump is the antichrist,” said one man as he crossed into Mexico. “If he doesn’t repent, he’s going to hell.”
