A new migrant caravan with thousands of people is headed for El Paso and is expected to arrive any day.

About 2,000 migrants began traveling earlier this month from Tapachula at the southern tip of Mexico near the Guatemala border. Video clips posted on social media show the huge group walking along roads near traffic and carrying a large white cross with red lettering.

One man can be heard telling the crowd through a bullhorn, “A la frontera,” which means, “To the border.”

The group is headed to Ciudad Juarez, which shares a border with El Paso, according to Voir Dire International, a group that tracks mass migration.

The caravan has been dubbed the “Way of the Cross Migrants” and includes men, women, and children from Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, and 17 other countries, according to the tracking group.

“Migrants have no other option but to walk as part of a group or hitch a ride in a trailer that could be their death,” organizer Luis Villagran with the Center for Human Dignity in Tapachula told Telemundo.
