By Rubén Morales Iglesias: One Belizean is among 652 US-bound migrants detained by Mexican authorities late Thursday in crowded trucks 220 miles south of McAllen, Texas.

Reuters reports that the migrants were traveling in three cargo trucks. The round-up is one of the biggest by Mexican police in recent years.

Ninety (90) percent were Guatemalans, with the rest being citizens of Honduras, El Salvador, and Nicaragua, and the lone Belizean. The migrants were taken to Tamaulipas where they were being processed by Mexican authorities.

When police pried open the trucks’ doors, they found the migrants huddled on the floor with practically all of them wearing face masks.

Almost 200 of the 652 migrants were unaccompanied children and teens said the Mexican police.

This round-up of Central American migrants even as thousands of Haitian migrants are being deported by the United States. Mexico, to a much lesser extent, is also deporting Haitian migrants.

Nine of the 652 migrants returned positive COVID-19 tests said Reuters.

On Monday night, Mexican authorities detained 103 migrants in Tabasco, in Mexico’s southeast according to Guatemalan newspaper República.
