Migrant caravans swell to 12,000
In the small town of Veracruz, Mexico, at a gas station and truck stop, two nuns began stopping big rigs Sunday to fill the trailers with waiting migrants from the caravan, Fox News reports.
The caravan is trying to make 116 miles, a record for them, considering the first day walking in Mexico they traveled just 20 miles.
The Catholic nuns at the scene are from Guadalajara’s Misioneras de Christo Resuscitado, and as a big red 18-wheeler approached, they flagged down the driver, stepped on the running board on the passenger side and spoke for about 5 minutes. The driver then gave a reluctant wave of the hand, one of the nuns spoke and dozens of young men ran to the rear to open the two tall metal doors.
An organizer appeared with a bullhorn, and loaded dozens of women and children and strollers inside. As soon as that truck left, with one door tied open, another approached. And again the nuns convinced him to fill his empty trailer with migrants.

The Pentagon are mainly deflecting questions to just the nuts and bolts of the deployment to the four main border crossing areas located in Brownsville, Texas, McAllen, Texas, Nogales, Arizona, and San Ysidro just outside San Diego.
