Two large groups of migrants from Central America were detained in Arizona in the United States, where they illegally came from Mexico. This was reported on Wednesday by Mexican radio station Noticias MMS.
We are talking about 124 citizens of Guatemala and Honduras aged from four months to 53 years. American border guards have already established that seven of them men and one woman had previously entered the United States illegally and were deported. Earlier this week, the head of the national Institute of migration of Mexico Tonatiu Guillen said That in the United States have recently been detained a total of 800 illegal migrants who entered there from a Latin American country.
In the new camp for migrants in the Mexican city of Tijuana on the border with the United States are currently more than 2.5 thousand people. About 3 thousand natives of Central America did not want to be placed there, their location remains unknown.
About 500 immigrants from Central America on November 25 tried to break from Tijuana to the United States. American security forces used tear gas against them. Later that day, the Mexican authorities announced that they would increase security at the border, as well as deport those migrants who resorted to violence and participated in the riots.
