400-person migrant caravan gathers in Mexico for trek to United States southern border

A 400-person migrant caravan 400 is moving together to seek entry into the United States, making the trek through Mexico, leaving Tapachula in the southern region of the country Saturday.

The caravan is made up of Central Americans and Haitians seeking asylum in the U.S. That group has emerged as the Mexican National Guard busted up at least three other caravans in the past week, as a group of 50 were detained in Escuintla, while as many as 300 avoided being captured [Mexico News Daily].

The Supreme Court has halted the Biden administration ban on the Trump administration Remain in Mexico policy, but Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has warned that its support “can’t go on forever.”

“We have taken it upon ourselves to help the U.S. government on the immigration issue, we are going to continue to do so,” he said last week. “We have tried to keep migrants in shelters, above all to protect minors, women, but this can’t go on forever. We have to get to the bottom of the issue and that means investing in the development of poor countries” [Newsmax].
