They left Tapachula, bordering Guatemala, five days ago to travel more than 2,800 kilometers to the Bravo River. They are still in Chiapas, specifically in Huixtla, amid uncertainty as to whether they will have the strength and resources to reach their destination.
The group of migrants has disbanded after leaving the borders of Chiapas; much of them have chosen other means than marching and are looking for any kind of transportation, including the roofs of freight cars.
Regarding this last means of transportation, the situation has been complicated by the agreements between the Government, the armed forces, and the railroads’ owners to prevent them from using them due to the tragedies in which dozens of people have died.
The Government has informed that the large majority of those migrants do not want to accept the programs proposed to them to stay in Mexico, as they already have their plans, coordinated possibly with their relatives already living in the United States if they cross the northern border.
