    Caravan Of Migrants Climbs Freight Train For The Next Leg Of The Journey

    Caravan Of Migrants Climbs Freight Train For The Next Leg Of The Journey

    April 14, 2018 at 9:20 pm

    TULTITLAN, MEXICO (CNN) — A caravan of Central American migrants heading north has boarded a train for the next leg of the journey in Mexico.

    About 500 migrants climbed onto the freight train Saturday afternoon in the city of Tultitlán, approximately 1,500 miles south of the US-Mexico border, to head northwest to the city of Celaya.


    When the first whistle of the train was heard, a stampede of migrants rushed to the tracks, carrying small bags of belongings. As the train slowed down, migrants scrambled around the train cars to find a way to climb aboard, helping each other as quickly as possible.


    Police and guards watched from a few feet away. Some took photos. None took action to stop the migrants as they climbed the train.


    Gabriela Hernandez of Honduras handed her toddler to another migrant who pulled him up and then she pushed her 6-year-old boy up the ladder. When it was Hernandez’s turn, the pregnant 27-year-old struggled to find the strength to pull herself onto the train.


    With help from others, Hernandez swung her leg onto the top of the car only to find a massive pile of scrap metal and trash. She will have to sit on the pile for hours until she reaches the next destination. She grabbed her two boys tightly, sat on a blanket above the pile and sobbed as her two boys consoled her.


    Hernandez said she is exhausted.


    “It’s difficult, but I will have to find the strength to carry on,” she said.


    As migrants set makeshift tents with blankets to protect them from the dusty wind and scorching sun, people from the ground and a bridge above waved. Some tossed water and snacks. As the train pulled forward, one migrant yelled out, “Gracias Mexico!” (“Thank you Mexico!”)


    The government of Mexico has granted many of the migrants temporary permission to stay in the country. Most of the migrants agree Mexico has been a welcoming place. Police have escorted the caravan at times and stopped traffic to help the convoys stay together.

    Churches and shelters have opened their doors, providing food and a safe place to sleep. Some of the migrants have decided to stay in Mexico.

    The caravan, organized by the group Pueblo Sin Fronteras, is considered a “via crucis,” an annual march with religious roots. On March 25, the group gathered about 1,200 Central American migrants in Tapachula, a town on the Mexico-Guatemala border, and began the pilgrimage north.

    The migrants, most from Honduras, say they are fleeing violence and poverty. Honduras and El Salvador are among the countries with the highest homicide rates in the world.


    A few days after the caravan launched its journey, US President Donald Trump warned on Twitter about “these big flows of people” heading to the US border and said they must be stopped.


    Laura, who didn’t want to share her name for fear that gangs in Honduras could track her down, said she takes offense to Trump’s comments. She insisted the migrants are not dangerous, and that they are just families escaping violence.


    She called for her daughter to show evidence of the violence she is fleeing in Honduras. Pulling the young girl’s shirt over her shoulder to show the scars, she explained that the gang in her neighborhood set her house on fire last year.

    She managed to pull her three children out of the home, but not in time to save her daughter from the burns that have scarred her face, arms and stomach.


    “I can’t go back to Honduras,” she said.


    Laura said she doesn’t know anyone in the United States but wants to reach the border to seek asylum. Like many of the families traveling with the caravan, she said she wants her children to attend school without having to worry about gangs, and she dreams of a better life for her family.

    While she waits for her asylum case to be adjudicated, she'll have her anchor baby. A definite win for her, even if she loses!

    Yeah...I'm so scared...but I will drop my drawers and do it in the dirt!

    Disgusting people. We do not want them or their children coming here. That is all they know.

    That is not who WE are as a country...go home...no vacancy...get some morals and self respect and get out of here.

    PATHETIC

    If they are living under such horrible conditions where they come from where did they get $2,000 to pay a coyote to get here? I heard one of them say that is what he paid a coyote to get here. If they did not get all the freebies here, they would not be so anxious to get here. Unlike citizens, the churches and special interests groups give them all kinds of special assistance. Sure, some of them work, but even when they do in most cases they are taking jobs that a lot of Americans would and could do.

    I don't understand why it's so hard to keep a large group of train tramps and vagrant off the freight trains. I can understand a few slipping through, but from some of the pictures I've seen in the past the so-called "beast" is filled to capacity with these folks.
