Hundreds of migrants ride on top of train in Mexico headed for US border

A train was recorded in Mexico heading toward a border town with hundreds of migrants riding on top of the cars.

A train on the BNSF railway, which is part of the largest freight railroad system in the United States, was noted by Fox News in central Mexico as it departed from Irapuato, Guanajuato, which is about 200 miles northwest of Mexico City.

The train carrying the migrants is set to travel to Monterrey, Mexico, before reaching Piedras Negras, which is a border city opposite Eagle Pass, Texas.


A migrant surge has caused a temporary suspension and reduction of processing at Texas and Arizona border points. This includes Eagle Pass International Bridge 1, CBP reportedly stated.

Vehicle processing will also be reduced at the Lukeville, Arizona, crossing, where migrants were pictured in a massive lineup recently.

Tucson Sector Border Patrol apprehended 58,000 illegal immigrants in a span of 28 days, it recently announced, with numbers piling onto an out-of-control October 2023. That month the sector saw 55,224 migrants, according to Breitbart.

Tucson Sector Chief Patrol Agent John Modlin posted numerous figures on X that were compiled from just one week. This included 15,300 apprehensions, 117 pounds of fentanyl seized, and over a dozen human smuggling events.

Democrat Mayor of Chicago Brandon Johnson recently blamed “right-wing extremism” for the migrant crisis that is plaguing left-wing sanctuary cities that tolerate and provide money and resources to illegal immigrants.

“It has to be better coordination. What we have seen is a raggedy form instituted by right-wing extremism,” Johnson said.


This echoes statements of alleged racism that New York City Mayor Eric Adams made at the end of April 2023. At the time, Adams claimed that Texas Governor Greg Abbott was “once again deciding to play politics with people’s lives by resuming the busing of asylum seekers to New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Denver, and Washington, D.C..”

“It is also impossible to ignore the fact that Abbott is now targeting five cities run by black mayors,” Adams continued. “Put plainly, Abbott is using this crisis to hurt black-run cities.”

Abbott had previously stated that he was simply sending illegal immigrants to “sanctuary cities” that don’t report the migrants for deportation.
