1,500-Person Caravan Headed Toward U.S. Gets Bad News, Report Says

On Monday, the 1,500-person caravan headed through Mexico toward the United States received bad news as the Mexican government is now reportedly going to be breaking up the group of people before they can reach the U.S. border.

Adolfo Flores, national security correspondent for immigration at BuzzFeed News, tweeted: “Mexican immigration authorities said they plan on disbanding the Central American caravan by Wednesday in Oaxaca. The most vulnerable will get humanitarian visas.”

Flores also wrote: “Everyone else in the caravan, which has traveled through Mexico for days from Chiapas, will have to petition the Mexican government for permission to stay in the country or will have to leave.”

Flores continued: “JO Rodríguez, a federal delegate with INM, told me this was not in response to Trump speaking out against the caravan. “Mexico is acting without pressure to find a solution to this problem.”

Rodríguez is referring to a series of tweets from President Donald Trump over the last 24-hours, in which he repeatedly slammed Mexico and Democrats for weak immigration policies. (Read more from “1,500-Person Caravan Headed Toward U.S. Gets Bad News, Report Says” HERE)
