Unlike America, Mexico Enforces Border Security by Arresting Migrants
DW reports that Mexican police arrested around 300-500 Central American migrants outside the city of Pijijiapan, Chiapas close to the border of Guatemala and Mexico.
Mexican police and immigration authorities apprehended the illegal immigrants who broke into Mexico with the goal of obtaining asylum in the United States.
This raid is one of the largest mounted against caravans since these mass migrant waves took off last year. After President Donald Trump threatened to close down the border last month if the caravans weren’t detained, Mexico has responded in kind with greater enforcement.
The recently arrested migrants were members of a caravan of about 3,000 Central Americans heading towards the U.S.
ZeroHedge reports that ” Thousands of Central American migrants – mostly from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador – made international headlines last October when they marched north through Mexico to the southern US border.”
This has inspired other caravans to make a similar trek northward. who claim to be running away from violence and poverty in their respective home countries. Curiously, they refuse offers of food, shelter, and work in Mexico.
Such movements have caused trouble in the U.S. with certain border towns like McAllen, Texas being flooded by unprecedented numbers of migrants.
