Mexican Cops Step Aside as New Migrant ‘Poverty’ Caravan Moves North

Ildefonso Ortiz, Breitbart, December 28, 2023

Mexican authorities stood down any efforts to contain a new migrant caravan that embarked this week from the southern part of Mexico. Authorities are currently escorting the groups and providing crowd control.

Calling themselves the Poverty Exodus (Exodo de la Pobreza), the caravan, which is made up of more than 6,000 migrants, left the city of Tapachula, Chiapas, on Christmas Eve. The caravan is making its way north. In various parts of the journey, the migrants waved a banner with the caravan’s name and carried a white cross. Members of the group made public claims that their goal was to reach the United States for economic reasons.


During various parts of the journey, Mexico’s National Guard members escorted the caravan and helped with crowd control and traffic control as the group moved north toward Mexico City. INM officials revealed to Breitbart Texas that they had been told to accompany the caravan to avoid issues but not to try to detain or interfere with the movement. {snip}
