Third migrant caravan, turned away by Mexico, crosses anyway at shallow part of river

Published

A third migrant caravan has breached Mexico’s border with Guatemala, this time from El Salvadore. The group used a narrow, shallow portion of the Suchiate River to make it into Mexico.

The group of 1000-1500 migrants first tried to get into Mexico by crossing a bridge, but they were forced to show passports and visas. Undeterred, they moved away from the bridge and instead invaded Mexico by wading across the river.

This is the third caravan in a month to cross into Mexico with hopes of coming to America and receiving refugee status. Applications for asylum are rejected 80% of the time, but trials are usually missed as they can take years.
