ANOTHER Migrant Caravan Forms, Begins Journey Through Mexico to U.S.

Yet another migrant caravan has formed–this time 2,500 members strong–and is making its way through Mexico to the U.S. border.

Most of the caravan members are from Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala and Cuba.

AZ Central reports:

The caravan walked past the city of Huixtla in the southern state of Chiapas on Monday, but police were lined up to keep them moving along a highway outside of the town, and did not let them enter — a contrast to last year, when caravans were allowed to stay in the city center.

The Mexican government abruptly halted its humanitarian visa program which gave the migrants legal status as they traveled through the country to the U.S. border. “That decision led a group of migrants, including many Cubans, to rush immigration offices near the border last week. The immigration agency closed those offices in response to the scuffle,” writes AZ Central.
