Mexican Village: Migrants and Border Bridge

mexican village: A similar confrontation occurred on the same border bridge between Mexico and Guatemala last year, according to CTV. The institute said the migrants were acting in a hostile and aggressive way, and accused them of also attacking local police in Metapa, a Mexican village that lies between the border and the nearby city of Tapachula. The National Immigration Institute did not identify the nationalities of the migrants, but they are usually from Central America. The group of 350 pushed past police guarding the bridge and joined a larger group of about 2,000 migrants who are walking toward Tapachula in the latest caravan to enter Mexico. Another son and a daughter are already in the United States. Claudia Jaqueline Sandoval, 43, from El Progreso, Honduras, was walking toward Tapachula with her 6-year-old daughter.
