Migrant caravan clashes with Mexican cops after Title 42 ends

Central American migrants and Mexican immigration officials have clashed in several encounters as authorities try to keep a group of around 500 people at the country’s southern border. The caravan is one of the first to make an effort since the announcement of the United States’ removal of deportation orders for Title 42 Covid-19 migrants.

Over the weekend, a group of around 500-600 migrants from various Central American countries began marching north from Tapachula, Chiapas, to reach US news briefings in Mexico which recorded the tense moments .

In the videos, agents from Mexico’s National Institute of Migration (INM) wear riot gear as they try to stop migrants from marching north. The encounter quickly turns violent. Women and children can be seen trying to avoid the authorities.

According to Mexican media, the migrants’ main complaint is that the authorities take too long to obtain travel documents, thus forcing them to spend months in Chiapas.
