350 mi­grants break bor­der gate, move into Mex­ico

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News -

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.
