#FactOfTheDay 05 /11/2018 – The first wave of Central America migrants arrives in Mexico City

Thousands of migrants from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador marching from Central America to the United States have reached Mexico. The first wave of approximatively 5 000 migrants that arrived in the Mexican capital has been sheltered in the city’s sports stadium, the Mexican government is reportedly processing over 2 800 asylum applications and over 1 000 asylum seekers have been deported back to their home countries. Ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, Donald Trump has deployed nearly 7 000 active troops to secure US borders.
