Migrants prepare a caravan from southern Mexico to the capital

Thousands of migrants, mostly from Haiti, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua, are preparing to leave in a caravan from the southeastern municipality of Tapachula, in Chiapas, to Mexico City.

This march, for freedom, dignity and peace, seeks to leave next Saturday from Tapachula and in it the foreigners will walk in human chains and ask the Mexican authorities for respect in order to move forward and achieve regularization of their situation in an administrative office of the Institute National Migration Agency (INM) of the capital, as they explained this Wednesday to Efe.

"We have all the faith that we are going to leave this October 23rd. We are making a sacrifice, so we ask for all the people who go as we are going to walk as far as the Lord will allow us."Guatemalan migrant Estela de León, who travels alone, told the media.

Estela added that there is a lot of violence, poverty and extortion in her country and that is why she left her country.

He indicated that his final destination in Mexico is Tijuana, where he seeks to work and have a safe life.

For several months, thousands of migrants of at least 11 nationalities have sought a way out of Tapachula seeking to advance their procedures before the Mexican Commission for Refugee Aid (Comar) or the INM, institutions saturated by the volume of applicants.

Jorge Nelson Ramírez, originally from El Salvador, explained that in Tapachula migrants can do various jobs, but living conditions are often dangerous.

The migrants settled this Wednesday outside the facilities of the Tapachula Judicial Power, where between prayers they asked the judges to grant them the protections that should facilitate them to continue their travels.

This Wednesday, migrants and human rights activists Irineo Mujica and Luis Rey García Villagrán brought 46 packages with petitions to federal judges to allow migrants to leave Tapachula on this walk.

This afternoon, the INM invited in a statement to the "people associated with amparos to wait in Chiapas for the resolution of their cases".

The institute recalled that people with applications for amparos cannot be deported as long as they remain "in the place where they are available to the court for protection" until the final ruling is issued.

As reported by the INM, at the cut-off of 10.00 hours (15.00 GMT) there was notification of 54 amparo lawsuits that are linked to 2,351 people.

The region has experienced an unprecedented migratory wave since the beginning of the year with a historical flow of 147,000 undocumented persons detected in Mexico from January to August, triple that of 2020, and a record of 212,000 migrants detained only in July by the Customs and Border Protection Office. (CBP) from the United States.

In early September, Mexican authorities thwarted the advance of four migrant caravans that left from Tapachula.

Several UN agencies and NGOs criticized the use of force in operations to dismantle these caravans.
