By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, the Mexican Government moved to disperse a major build-up of migrants on its southern border with Guatemala by transporting thousands into nearby towns, Reuters report.
Mexico’s National Migration Institute (INM) said it deployed 189 buses and 73 vans to move migrants from Tapachula to other parts of the state of Chiapas and the southern states of Veracruz and Tabasco.
“Given the unusual concentration of migrants at the facilities of the Mexican Commission for Aid to Refugees (COMAR) in Tapachula, the National Migration Institute depressurized the place, relocating more than 8,000 migrants to avoid situations that put them in danger,” authorities said.
However, thousands were still outside offices in Tapachula this morning.
Asylum seekers would be processed at a camp in Tapachula Park due to the surge in applicants.
