A caravan of a few thousand migrants has begun pushing its way north Saturday from southern Mexico, hoping the U.S. and Mexican governments will stand aside while they reach the new lives and jobs in the United States.

The economic migrants departed from the southern town of Tapachula, where many of them have been kept by the Mexican government.

The migrants are fleeing their own failed economies, and are hoping to let them into the United States. Since January, Biden’s deputies have allowed roughly 1 million southern migrants into the United States, even as they also rejected 1 million migrants.

The migrants are appealing to President Joe Biden to let them into the United States:
