The latest Central American migrant caravans are inching closer to the U.S. border and it appears the Mexican government is now openly supporting their advance.

Breitbart is reporting "Coahuila officials deployed 49 private buses and dozens of police vehicles to help transport and safeguard more than 1,700 migrants to an unsecured part of the Texas border."

Ground Zero is on the Mexico side of the border just south of Eagle Pass, Texas, not far from where President Trump recently visited. Still, other groups of migrants will head toward Tijuana.

Fox News reports preparations are being made in Nuevo Leon, a border state just east of Coahuila where more than a thousand of the migrants are expected to be provided with food, shelter, and medical care.

Trump has ordered another 3,700 U.S. troops to the border to assist Border Patrol agents in keeping the migrants from crossing illegally into the United States.

And still, Democrats refuse to acknowledge the security and humanitarian crisis at the border. They continue to resist Trump's call for a border wall to protect our nation's sovereignty for nothing more than political reasons.

Trump has vowed to build the wall with or without congressional support. We're gonna hold you to that promise, Mr. President.
