The Central American migrant caravan that was a focal point prior to the midterm election has made its way to central Mexico where local officials are helping them find rides for the next leg of their journey.

After the main caravan spent Saturday night in three shelters, the biggest of which was a soccer stadium, in an area to the west of the central Mexico city of Queretaro, they began moving on their way another 62 miles towards Irapuato.

The government of Queretaro said via Twitter that 6,531 migrants had moved through the state between Friday and Saturday. It said that 5,771 of those were departing Sunday morning.

The size of the leading caravan seems to have grown since the group was in Mexico City for several days, raising the possibility that other migrants have caught up to the main caravan.

Police helped find trucks to take migrants on their way, and prevented them from trying to stop drivers themselves as they continue on to the US.

In the US they will likely be greeted by US military personnel who have been busy installing barbed wire along the border.

A day earlier a similar scene played out as the migrant caravan exited Mexico City.

Dedicated metro trains moved them across the capital before dawn and at a toll plaza north of the city they formed orderly lines to wait for their turn to climb aboard passing 18-wheelers that were willing to help them cover the 124 miles to Queretaro.

The migrants appear to be on a path to Tijuana across the border from San Diego, which is still some 1,600 miles away.

The caravan became a campaign issue in midterm elections.
