On Sunday, The new migrant caravan made up of over 4,000 migrants continued its journey to Mexico City to demand the normalization of their immigration status in order to cross to the U.S or legally stay in Mexico.
Migrants denounced a lack of attention from Mexican authorities to complete migratory procedures and the containment policy applied to migrants in Chiapas.
Despite the caravan staying compact, the National Guard captured some migrants who straggled.
