- The Mexican officials started dispersing more than a hundred migrants gathered in Tapachula, southern parts of the city, and then bus them to other states, before moving off the prospect of a new caravan to the north.
The migrants, mostly from Haiti and parts of Latin America, had long waiting for asylum and visa requests in Tapachula in Chiapas state, and were in limbo for years, with long waits for a resolution of the problems in the queue and long waits for asylum and visa requests.
Migration activist Luis Carcia Villagran said the city was a "prison" because migrants were unable to leave without formal paperwork. Two groups of migrants have departed on their journey north, in part to increase visibility of their situation and demand a response from the Mexican government.
The transfer from Tapachula began Wednesday night, when 120 Haitian migrants ferried to Aguascalientes, Campeche and Durango, an official said on Thursday.
As soon as possible, more migrants will be sent to Puebla and Guanajuato, whose migrants will be sent to the State of Guanajuato, as part of a campaign for asylum and visa status and for an even more stable process, said the person, speaking in conditions of anonymity.
Hector Martinez of Tapachula told migrants that twenty buses would leave the city today in total.
The migrants agreed to leave the route and to take him elsewhere in exchange for Mexico visa.
Wilguens Antoine, a Haitian migrants who said he didn't know where Mexican officials would take him, was relieved to leave Tapachula, where he did not have the money to rent for his family or take care of the lodging.
As soon as he landed a taxi, he said, "I think, I'm glad, because I'm going to another city to work to help my family, " he said immediately.
Villagran said 600 people are expected to be moved out of Tapachula.
"This is a way of avoiding mass movement of Haitians, Cubans and all the people who were prepared to leave tomorrow (in a caravan", said he.
