Parents of disappeared migrants enter Mexico
Fifty parents of missing Central American migrants set off from Mexico’s southern border on Friday for a cross-country trip in search of their relatives, who vanished after entering the country. It is the 15th time the Mesoamerican Migration Movement, a non-government organisation, has made the journey. The caravan of 45 women and five men entered Chiapas state from Guatemala and will travel about 5,000 kilometres to cities through which undocumented Central Americans are known to pass on their way to the US. “There are estimates of between 70,000 and 120,000 missing. Many are in mass graves, others in clandestine graves, others in morgues,” MMM leader Martha Sanchez said.
