SECOND MIGRANT CARAVAN ARRIVES IN MEXICO CITY
As the main group of caravan migrants continues its journey north towards the United States, a separate group is quickly approaching Mexico City from the southern state of Veracruz. Several groups of Central American migrants have joined together to travel through this state on Mexico's Gulf coast. Migrants could be seen walking orderly down a highway while others jumped into the back of a truck to catch a ride north. The migrants are en route to the U.S. border where President Donald Trump has effectively suspended the granting of asylum to migrants who cross illegally. Trump's Friday (November 09) order, which went into effect on Saturday (November 10), means that migrants will have to present themselves at U.S. ports of entry to qualify for asylum and follow other rules unveiled on Thursday (November 08) that seek to limit asylum claims. Many migrants, made up mostly of Hondurans, say they want to seek asylum in the United States, citing violence in their own countries.
