According to the institute, seven girls and twenty boys were traveling without company in the group. The INM learned of the case through an anonymous tip, and the National Guard, coordinated with the Attorney General´s Office, acted inmediately to rescue the large number of people, mostly Central American.

The report specifies that these are unaccompanied adult women and men, unaccompanied minors and a family who were placed, some of them, in the spaces of the buses that are destined for luggage with mattresses and others crammed into the passengers seats.

The vehicles were intercepted when it was going along federal highway 200 Santa Maria Huatulco-Acapulco Guerrero. The INM does not report on the situation of the drivers or whether the travelers included human traffickers.

The foreigners commented that they had been in the fields for several days and that their transfer from the Mexico-Guatemala border had been on foot through different gaps, some in vehicles and others aboard of speedboats, the INM reported.
