A Mexican train is transporting dozens of migrants to the U.S. southern border, according to a new report.
Fox News national correspondent Griff Jenkins posted an alarming video of the migrant train on the X social media platform on Sunday afternoon.
Griff captioned the video: "FOX News sources capture a FerroMex train bursting with migrants out of Zacatecas heading to our southern border right now… cheering and clearly not heeding the message: 'do not come."
Zacatecas is a Mexican state located in north-central Mexico.
The FerroMex website states: "We operate the largest railroad network in Mexico, with more than 6,200 miles of track covering the major industrial and commercial zones in the country, connecting with the rest of the world through 8 seaports and 6 border crossings."
Griff was quoting Vice President Harris from June 2021.
During a press conference in Guatemala with the Central America country's president, Harris told migrants, "I want to be clear to folks in this region who are thinking about making that dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico border. Do not come. Do not come. The United States will continue to enforce our laws and secure our border."
The video of the migrant train went viral online, racking up half a million views in less than two hours. The footage caught the attention of concerned Republicans and conservatives.
Republican Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona declared, "This is what an invasion looks like. Nothing about this is regular or lawful."
Rep. Cory Mills (R-Fla.) demanded, "This must be stopped immediately. The @SenateDems must take up @GOPHouseOfRep passed H.R. 2, impeach @SecMayorkas for allowing our country to be invaded and American lives lost, and stop ALL funding to these nations who allow our borders to be overrun. Call your Senators and tell them to pass H.R. 2 Secure The Border Act."
NewsNation national correspondent Jorge Ventura reacted by saying, "The Biden administration can keep putting out the messaging that the ‘border is closed,' it’s clear migrants coming to the U.S. border don’t believe it."
Podcast host Monica Crowley tweeted, "INVASION."
Also on Sunday, Fox News national correspondent Bill Melugin shared a video of "numerous illegal immigrants dressed in camouflage using ropes to scale the border wall, then run off into the desert without apprehension in Naco, AZ."
Melgin noted that there have been more than 1.5 million "gotaways" since Joe Biden became president.
The New York Post reported in May, "More than 1.5 million illegal migrants have slipped into the U.S. since Joe Biden took office — more than three times the number recorded during the last three years of Trump’s presidency, Department of Homeland Security data shows."
