A caravan of migrants from Central America and Cuba began to move from the South of Mexico to the border with the United States. Free News reports about it reports with reference to migration services.
According to the migration services, there are about 1.2 thousand people in the caravan.
The national Institute of migration of Mexico (INM) reported that migrants focused on Mexican territory in the southern city of Tapachula on the border with Guatemala, where the caravan began moving towards the United States.
Thus, according to the Institute, on the morning of March 23, a large group of people headed towards the Mexican city of Whistla in the southern state of Chiapas. It is noted that this route was followed by the previous caravans heading North.
In mid-October 2018, a caravan of more than 5 thousand migrants from Honduras moved to the US border to ask Washington for asylum. The caravan reached the American border a month later. The US President Donald Trump sent soldiers of the national guard to the border, and on November 22 signed a decree on the partial closure of the border with Mexico and gave permission to the military to open fire on refugees.
