Videos circulating widely on social media this week appear to show a migrant caravan of more 4,000 people is heading north towards the United States through Panama’s Darién Gap.
Real America’s Voice host Ben Bergquam shared videos showing the migrant caravan on the scene in Lajas Blancas, Panama, to X.
“I’ve never seen anything like this, it’s a sea of people, look at this,” Bergquam said. “All the way down to the river, guys, thousands, four thousand in one day.”
Lajas Blancas has been “completely overrun,” Bergquam explained, “because of [Department of Homeland Security] Secretary Mayorkas, and Joe Biden. Democrats did this.”
“Kevin McCarthy — what are you doing to stop it?” Bergquam asked.
The migrants are reportedly getting on buses to head north to the southern U.S. border.
According to data from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, law enforcement encountered more than 180,000 migrants attempting to enter the country illegally in July.
“This could get violent in a heartbeat,” a man at Lajas Blancas told Bergquam Monday. “And they said it has emptied out — it’s emptied out — a lot of the buses have already left, there were hundreds and hundreds more people earlier today.”
“This is insane, I’ve never seen anything like this,” the man added, saying that the Panamanian government is providing the migrant caravan with three free meals a day.
In another video shared to X Monday night, Bergquam shows a series of buses carrying migrants leaving from Panama and heading for the U.S.
“Heading to a city near you, from Panama to the United States. Nonstop, because of Joe Biden and the Democrats,” Bergquam said while filming the departure of six buses.
Bergquam said that he had seen 30 buses leave earlier that day.
“It was out of control before, now it’s an absolute disaster,” he said. “And New York, guess what, a lot of them are coming to you.”
“[NYC Mayor] Eric Adams, you invited this. The Democrats, you sanctuary-supporting Democrats, you guys invited this,” he added.
Adams, who campaigned on keeping New York a sanctuary city, recently said that the migrant crisis “will destroy” the city, and has called for steep budget cuts and a hiring freeze to help the city cope with the cost of an influx of more than 100,000 migrants arriving into the city since last year.
Real America’s Voice correspondent Oscar El Blue, reporting Monday from the Darién Gap, told “War Room” host Steve Bannon that cartel members in the Panamanian jungle have “sophisticated technology” and have “all control” over the transportation of the migrant caravans.
