Migrants seek to reach the United States
Dozens of migrants who left in a caravan from Chiapas north of Mexico they confronted, with children in their arms, the military and elements of the National Guard who tried to arrest them.
They are about 700 Haitian, Cuban, Colombian and Venezuelan migrants who denounced that they have been living in the streets for almost a year without receiving a response to their request for asylum.
When the caravan had already made a long journey on the road Talisman-Tapanatepec, the troops tried to encircle them at that point.
“We have children, brothers, put your hand on your conscience,” shouted a Central American who was holding a baby. The migrants broke the fence and continued on their way.
In a second attempt at containment, the caravan also crossed the security fence in the Huehuetán-Tuzantán section, and advanced towards Huixtla.
