‘HOSTILE AND AGGRESSIVE’ MIGRANTS BREAK THROUGH BORDER INTO SOUTHERN MEXICO, JOIN US-BOUND CARAVAN
Several groups of migrants in the southern border state of Chipas have expressed frustration at Mexico’s cold attitude towards them
A group of around 350 Central American migrants broke the locks on a gate at the Guatemala-Mexico border, forcing their way into Mexico to join a larger caravan of 2,000 or so migrants headed towards the United States, AP reports.
According to the National Immigration Institute, the migrants were acting in a “hostile” and ” aggressive” manner – and said that they were attacking local police in the Mexican village of Metapa near the city of Tapachula.
The incident echoed a similar confrontation on the same border bridge between Mexico and Guatemala last year.
