Mi­grants call for bus ride

The Northern Star - - WORLD -

CEN­TRAL Amer­i­can mi­grants in a car­a­van that has stopped in Mex­ico City de­manded buses Thurs­day to take them to the US bor­der, say­ing it is too cold and dan­ger­ous to con­tinue walk­ing and hitch­hik­ing.

About 200 mi­grants, rep­re­sent­ing the roughly 5000 stay­ing in a sta­dium in the south of Mex­ico’s cap­i­tal, marched to the United Na­tions of­fice in Mex­ico City to de­mand trans­porta­tion. The Mex­i­can gov­ern­ment has said most of the mi­grants have re­fused of­fers to stay in Mex­ico, and only a small num­ber have agreed to re­turn to their home coun­tries.
