The caravan – which includes hundreds of migrants from Haiti, Central America and Venezuela – began making its way toward America on Friday from Tapachula, a city in Mexico near the Guatemalan border, according to a report from Reuters.
Migrants coming into the U.S. are not required to show proof of vaccination. According to border patrol agents and data collected from border cities, there have been thousands of COVID-positive migrants who have been released into the country.
Fox News contributor and former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (HIELO) Acting Director Tom Homan joined Fox News Saturday to discuss the caravan and the threat that the new omicron variant poses for Americans.
“Now is the time to take Title 42 seriously and stop people from coming to the United States during this crisis,” Homan said, adding that he’s heard the Biden administration is processing “maybe up to 200 removals a day.”
