Mexico says migrants in caravan face administrative procedure

Mexico says migrants in caravan face administrative procedure

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox fired back at President Donald Trump for challenging America's southern neighbor to intervene after news that a "caravan" of Honduran nationals is transiting through the country toward the U.S.

Similar caravans have been organized each of the past five years by activists from Pueblo Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders.

"Mexico is doing very little, if not nothing at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their southern border and then into the US", Trump tweeted.

Horton refers to the economic assistance of up to 320 million dollars a year that the United States has provided to the Central American country to help it "strengthen its border with Guatemala, where immigrants usually cross".

"About 80% of them are from Honduras", Flores explains in his report.

Abeja said the Mexican government was in a hard position with the caravan, given the growing publicity attached to its daily progress. In 2010, 72 migrants who were traveling the same route were killed by a drug cartel, Mother Jones reported.

"Let this be heard near and far: neither security issues nor social problems can be resolved with walls" he said, condemning Trump's "contemptuous attitude toward Mexicans". Border Patrol Agents (and ICE) are GREAT, but the weak Dem laws don't allow them to do their job.


The organized portions of the caravans usually have not gone much farther north than the Gulf coast state of Veracruz, although some participants have then gone off by bus or truck to the USA border, moving as individuals or in small groups. "Drugs will keep pouring into the U.S.as long as people consume them".

"The Mexican government is under a lot of pressure from the United States to show that it has control over its borders", he said. Under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, those eligible for protected status must have lived continuously in the US since 2007 and entered the country before their 16th birthday, but Trump rescinded the program in September and gave Congress until March to strike a compromise.

Guajardo said there was still no date set for another formal round of talks, adding, "It's clear that, given Washington's interest in advancing this process, they didn't want an eighth round".

Between buses, rides and even unsafe trains, thousands of immigrants try to protect each other from the dangers of pilgrimage to the border, where finally some hope "that the USA authorities grant them asylum" (about two thirds of the marchers, according to the organizers) while others will seek refuge within Mexican territory.

In the interim, renegotiation talks on NAFTA have become progressively worse, and more combative, as trade representatives from Canada, and Mexico are forced to deal with the new, America First, demands of the Trump Administration.

In fact, to be eligible for Daca, applicants must have lived in the United States continually since 15 June 2007 and come to the country before their 16th birthday. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws.
