Thousands of migrants from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador marching from Central America to the United States have reached Mexico. The first wave of approximatively 5 000 migrants that arrived in the Mexican capital has been sheltered in the city’s sports stadium, the Mexican government is reportedly processing over 2 800 asylum applications and over 1 000 asylum seekers have been deported back to their home countries. Ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, Donald Trump has deployed nearly 7 000 active troops to secure US borders.
