The caravan of migrants is located in Eagle Pass, just east of the Rio Grande river, which has seen a surge in illegal border crossings recently.
In video footage taken of the group, a law enforcement vehicle can be seen pulling over near the large group. But it is unclear if immigration officials took any of the migrants into custody.
According to the Washington Examiner, the group of migrants is a part of the largest-ever caravan that traveled through Mexico earlier this summer.
“An estimated 950 migrants are en route to Eagle Pass,” reporter Auden Cabello of Real America’s Voice said on Friday.
“They are currently in Sabinas, Coahuila, where they will regroup since most got rides on different vehicles to avoid walking in the heat from Monterrey.”
Texas National Guard is gearing up at the border for increased caravans attempting to cross the border caused by Biden’s open border policy.
They are working with the Texas Dept. of Public Safety to seal surge locations at the border & arrest trespassers.

Despite Abbott’s warning, border officials in the state, specifically in the Del Rio region, have experienced “increasing numbers of large groups [trying to illegally cross] into our area,” including a group of 300 people near Eagle Pass last week.
“With temperatures remaining near or over 100 degrees, those contemplating an illegal entry need to understand that these large groups delay transport times in the treacherous heat … a dangerous combination,” Jason Owens, Border Patrol chief patrol agent in Del Rio, said in a statement.
