Tijuana has asked the Mexico’s federal government for $4 million so the city could accommodate thousands of migrants who part of a caravan that for the past month has been making its way to the border.
A border patrol source said the migrants were arrested for trying to illegally cross the border.
A major shot across the bow from President Trump on Thursday may give migrants in the Central American caravan second thoughts about entering the U.S.
With the number of migrants in Mexico increasing, their timetable to the U.S. accelerating, and the certainty of their arrival less in doubt, the question becomes: What does the endgame look like?
The Mexico City park hosting some 7,000 migrants looks like something out of a renaissance fair, with dozens of small tents giving away shoes or offering a host of services, like dental work, medical care, telephones, haircuts, food and, perhaps the most important product – legal advice.
Four caravans are currently traveling inside Mexico, totaling some 12,000 Central American migrants.
The caravan is really made up of hundreds of small groups of friends who watch each other’s back. Some are extended family, neighborhood friends or strangers who met on this journey.
Mexico City is preparing for the arrival of the caravan of 7,000 Central Americans making its way to the U.S. border.
The caravan’s arrival in the U.S. continues to advance as the migrants moved Friday with amazing speed, doing 62 miles before noon.
As the world’s eyes remain on the migrant caravan, which has become the new rallying cry in the country’s explosive immigration debate, the members of the caravan are starting to feel the effects of the grueling journey – but they vow to march on.
