A huge migrant caravan is heading to the U.S. and could become the largest in history.

A Fox News report revealed that the group already numbers about 10,000 migrants and is expected to grow to about 15,000 before reaching the border.

The caravan departed Monday from Tapachula, on the Mexico-Guatemala border. The migrants, who mostly come from Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua, will travel the coastal route to reach the border with the United States.

Speaking exclusively to Fox News, a Haitian migrant said he hopes Biden will keep his promise to allow them to stay once they reach the border.

“He promised the Haitian community he will help them,” the migrants said. “He will recall Title 42. He will help us have real asylum,” they added.

The migrant’s comments come as the Biden administration continues its fight to end Title 42, a Trump-era rule that allows asylum seekers to be removed without typical due process, in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Number of illegal migrants with criminal records on the rise

As the caravan grows larger and larger, the numbers of illegal migrants in the country are increasing.

Critics have blamed the president for creating a border crisis following the repeal of Trump-era immigration policies. They claim Biden has created an incentive for migrants to make the dangerous journey through Mexico on a mission to illegally enter the United States.

In fact, 24 states across the country launched a lawsuit against the government, successfully stopping Biden’s plans to end Title 42. The states argue that the decision would lead to a “wave of illegal migration and drug trafficking.”

A Border Patrol statement revealed last June 3 that from October 2021 through May 2022, Border Patrol agents in the El Paso sector have encountered more than 658 people with criminal records and gang affiliations.

During the past 7 days, arrests included six subjects for criminal sexual contact with a minor, one individual with an active warrant for murder, and convictions for theft, assault and sexual assault.

“Transnational Criminal Organizations have smuggled hundreds of criminals into our communities who pose a threat to public safety,” said El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria I. Chavez.

“Dangerous criminals endanger our communities as they often continue to disregard the rule of law. Interdicting convicted felons illegally entering the United States is amongst the most vital duties performed by Border Patrol Agents in the El Paso Sector. Extremely proud of our Border Patrol Agents keeping all of us safe,” she added.
