Jalisco prepares for a second wave of migrants

The second caravan of Central American migrants is approaching Jalisco, so the state government is preparing to give them attention, according to official sources.

During the past week, just over 6,000 migrants arrived in Jalisco to the Benito Juarez shelter in Zapopan, which was closed by the governor of Jalisco, Aristóteles Sandoval Díaz, on the grounds that they no longer expected mass arrivals.

However, this weekend the migrants have been arriving at the Casa del Refugio del Migrante, in Tlaquepaque, where more than one hundred people keep that shelter full.

Last week the migrants who arrived were of 12 nationalities, especially Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Belize.

A total of 612 members of a fraction of the second caravan of migrants departed at 6:30 am on Sunday from the La Corregidora stadium and headed towards Guanajuato.

Civil Protection of the state, through its official Twitter account, reported that migrants who stayed overnight Saturday at the stadium continued their journey to Tijuana, Baja California.

Through the inter-institutional group that headed the state government, 1,669 people were served in different groups since their arrival on Friday, Saturday and Sunday where they received medical attention and food.
