1,699 APPLICATIONS WERE PROCESED IN THE AZTEC COUNTRY

Tapachula/Agencia EFE

Mexican authorities informed they have received 1,699 asylum applications. According to a report by Mexico’s Secretary of State and the Secretary of Foreign Affairs, these applications pertain mostly to women, children and teenagers who were part of the caravan of migrants. These government institutions indicated they maintain active the phase of humanitarian help for the Central American immigrants who entered their territory through the Guatemala-Mexico border.

The applicants are being hosted in Chiapas at the facilities of the Tapachula fair, to be helped by Mexico’s National Institute of Immigration (INM) and the Mexican Commission for Refugee Assistance. The INM also informed they have received 495 requests from Honduran immigrants for assistance to voluntarily return to their country. Authorities have met with representatives of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to follow up on refuge applications.

Mexican authorities estimated the number of people in the caravan is currently at 4,500. Local sources, particularly in Chihuahua were speculating by saying the number could rise to more than 7,000. This caravan is currently far south in Mexican territory, in Chiapas state. This group of people have advanced about 24 miles per day. They would need to walk another 1,500 miles to be able to reach the border with the U.S.

Some obstacles

Migrants are already presenting some health issues, such as dehydration, muscle pain and pain infections. Some of them are being helped by civil or religious associations as well as paramedics, who are offering basic medical attention. Although tenacity and will remains in the group, exhaustion begins to be visible. As informed by journalists who are traveling with the migrants, many of them have a hard time waking up after they find a place to sleep, after fifteen days of walking.

High temperatures and extreme humidity have become obstacles for many of the migrants. One person died of exhaustion. “We are cornered against the wall. We know everyone wants to move forward, but we are mourning today and honoring this person and his dreams”, said Irineo Mujica, leader of nonprofit Pueblo Sin Fronteras. Despite all these setbacks, the desire for the American dream remains in many members of the caravan.
