Media: the transition on the border of Mexico and the United States have reopened after protests by migrants

About 300 people attended the demonstration from Central America, Venezuela, and Cuba.

MEXICO City – The border crossing between the Mexican city of Matamoros and neighboring Brownsville, in Texas, reopened on Thursday evening after a protest staged by migrants. US News reported.

About 300 people attended the demonstration from Central America, Venezuela, and Cuba. They blocked traffic on the bridge between the two cities, thus expressing dissatisfaction with the actions of the US authorities, which, according to them, greatly delay the consideration of asylum requests.

US President Donald Trump on May 30 threatened to impose a duty of 5% on goods from Mexico in connection with the migration crisis on the common border. Representatives of the two countries managed to agree, and the introduction of tariffs was postponed indefinitely. By September, Mexican authorities estimated that their actions had helped reduce the number of migrants heading to the United States by 56%.
