The Mexican government has released statistics on the number of migrants that have passed through the country on the way to the United States, and the figures are staggering.
Officials report that over 300,000 have come mainly from Honduras and Central America but also note that some migrants are coming from Cuba, Africaand southern Asia.
What’s more Mexico Interior Secretary Olga Sánchez Cordero claims that all of these migrants seek to enter the U.S. “illegally.”
“It’s estimated that during the first three months of the year, more than 300,000 migrants have transited through Mexico to enter the United States illegally,” Sanchez Cordero shared. “There’s a change in the flow of migrants who are entering our country.”
Not only does this confirm the massive threat that is posed by these “migrant caravans” but it also points out that migrants from over seas are taking advantage of the turmoil to gain access to America.
