Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins is in Oaxaca, Mexico covering the invading migrant caravan marching on the southern border and he revealed Tuesday that the horde is not doing much walking of late.
While doing a live shot that captured migrants loading onto buses, Jenkins explains that for the first time that he has seen, there is an organized bus operation in place — it’s almost like Mexico is hurrying them along to their destination.
In another surprising development, it’s being reported that there may be as many as four separate migrant caravans in Central America making their way to the U.S.
Fox News reported that a second caravan has already crossed into Mexico.

The report on buses coming after the Pentagon announced Monday that it would send around 5,200 troops to the border ahead of the arrival of the caravan.
Jenkins reported that there are 11 buses in operation at the moment, with women and children given priority — he did note that husbands not wanting to separate from their families are also boarding.
With thousands of migrants in the caravan he’s traveling with, Jenkins said it’d take 80 or more buses to move them all.
The buses raise additional questions about who is financing this massive move of humanity, the logistics alone requiring substantial effort.
It also justifies President Donald Trump’s decision to call the approaching caravans a national emergency.
Air Force Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, head of U.S. Northern Command, said that additional troops will be deployed to the southern border, according to Fox News.
“What I can confirm is there will be additional force over and above the 5,239, the magnitude of that difference I don’t have an answer for you,” O’Shaughnessy said at a news conference Tuesday in the Pentagon.
O’Shaughnessy, the top U.S. military commander for North America, told reporters, “This caravan is different than what we’ve seen in the past.”
“What we have seen is clearly an organization at a higher level than we have seen before,” he added. “We’ve seen violence coming out of the caravan, and we have seen as they pass other international borders — we’ve seen them behave in a nature that we have not seen in the past.”
