Mexico Providing Caravan with Charter Buses to Get Migrants to US for Midterms
Mexican state is helping speed up travel for migrants to US border in time for elections
The caravans of thousands of migrants currently marching through Mexico to the US Southern Border are now being aided by the Mexican state, who is providing the travelers with chartered buses to help them reach the United States in time for the midterm elections.
According to a bombshell report by Fox News's Griff Jenkins, thousands of migrants were seen being loaded onto buses on Tuesday in Oaxaca in Mexico to help them speed up their push north.
Vehicles were lined up by professional bus services, with hundreds of migrants queuing up to be ferried to toward the US border by the tour buses.

According to the Daily Caller, Jenkins showed multiple professional buses lined up and boarding migrants to take them to their next destination on the path to the American border.
“Something new that’s developing here,” Jenkins said as he wandered the bus loading zone.
“We’ve seen the 5,000 strong caravan walking to the border but now they’re waiting for a ride to the border.
"This is the first time I have seen an organized bus operation from the state of Oaxaca actually getting volunteer buses to put people … on them and take them to their next location.”

Jenkins said that this is a reversal from the previous Mexican policy of attempting to dissuade the caravan from reaching the U.S.:
"That’s very significant now because these towns continue to help them.
"When we began this way back a week or so – Mexican police were trying to dissuade them from going across the Guatemala-Mexico border.
"At least some of the towns are assisting them to make their way."
Jenkins said that more buses were coming to pick up the migrants, but could not determine where the buses were coming from or who was paying for them.
President Donald Trump has sent more than 5,200 troops to the border.
