350 migrants break border gate, move into Mexico
Mexican authorities said a group of about 350 migrants broke the locks on a gate at the Guatemalan border Friday and forced their way into southern Mexico to join a larger group of migrants trying to make their way toward the United States.
The National Immigration Institute did not identify the nationalities of the migrants, but they are usually from Central America.
A similar confrontation occurred last year on the same border bridge between Mexico and Guatemala.
The institute said the migrants acted in a “hostile” and “aggressive” way, and it accused them of attacking police in Metapa, a Mexican village.
