(ANSA) – MEXICO CITY, OCTOBER 25 – Some thousands of Central American migrants, adhering to the ‘March for Peace, Justice and Freedom’, and who on Saturday left Tapachula, in Chiapas, with the intention of reaching the city of Mexico, are advancing slowly north, accompanied at a distance by agents of the National Guard and the National Institute of Migration (Inm).

A delegation of theirs made contact with the media yesterday, delivering, reported on TV Milenio, a statement asking the INM for guarantees of free movement through Mexican soil, in order to reach the northern border with the United States.

A spokesperson for the migrants said that “the security authorities in Chiapas have allowed free transit on the highway section between Huhuetlán and Huixtla” which we consider “one more step to realize our American dream”.

The agents of the National Guard and the INM, the broadcaster noted, “lined up at various points of the highway, in what might have seemed an attempt to block the caravan, but this was not the case and the migrants passed unscathed. “.

The situation remains tense on the ground, however, as migratory flows rose sharply in 2021. According to official data, 1.3 million migrants have been arrested on the southern border of the United States since Joe Biden’s arrival at the White House last January. .

For its part, the humanitarian organization Human Rights Watch (HRW) has announced that Mexico has expelled 54,000 foreigners from its territory this year. (HANDLE).
