The events occurred yesterday in Chiapas when members of both bodies repressed some 300 migrants from various countries, who tried to reach the northern border on foot or by truck to try to enter the United States.

Images of immigration agents beating foreigners were released in the written press and television published videos of the abuse, something unusual since the policy of government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is the opposite and its motto is ‘nothing through the force, all by reason and right ‘, broken this time.

According to press reports, more than a hundred people are detained and the rest were unable to advance towards the Mexican north as they wished.

The first to make an alert call was the head of the International Commission on Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, even though her credibility at the head of that UN institution is very low in this country, it helped support an immediate campaign of the Mexican political opposition.

According to reports, it was a group estimated of 300 Central Americans and Haitians who spent the night in the central park of Mapstepec town on their way to the border with the United States.

Federal authorities are investigating the unusual events so contrary to the policy applied so far by the central government, and are seeking to know whose disastrous initiative it was.
