The proximity of the caravan has caused mixed reactions on social networks, where some demand not to allow them access as they consider them a threat, while others ask to enforce their rights.
After the announcement of an alleged ‘passage’ through Mexican territory of thousands of Central Americans who will seek to reach the United States, the National Institute of Migration with the support of the National Guard and the Mexican Army has ordered the deployment to the borderlines areas.
Surveillance devices are maintained 24 hours a day in Tabasco and Chiapas to apply the law in case the hundreds of undocumented immigrants try to enter.
The preliminary information is that more than six thousand migrants, at the moment, of Honduran nationality, are traveling on foot from their country, and have already entered Guatemala, and with that, they are heading towards Mexico, where the borders are already, are protected.

On his part, Don Gilberto Ramos specifies about the migrant caravan and exposes the Mexican security forces as insufficient: “Really, very few personnel and very little equipment. They need the backup National Guard to keep things under control. People come with a lot of euphoria and despair ”.
Lucy Rojas said that the surveillance devices (drones) are precisely the requirement to enforce the law. No more migrants, we need to take care of the country first, she said.
