Mexican Border State Governor: ‘No More Migrant Caravans Allowed’


The Mexican governor who recently ordered 1,700 Central American migrants bused to the border with Texas claims he will not allow more caravans into his state. In recent days, the number of migrants grew to approximately 2,000.

After dealing with the first caravan currently in Piedras Negras, Coahuila Governor Miguel Angel Riquelme said his state is at capacity and will not be allowing any more groups, Zocalo reported.

“I don’t know when they have planned other caravans like this but they can go to another state, we will block the entrance to Coahuila,” Riquelme told Zocalo. “We can’t allow this to get out of control, we have been overwhelmed by the number of people. Because of what they are looking for we don’t even have the capacity to review the migration situation of each of them.”
