Mexican officials in Piedras Negras are closing the doors to a migrant caravan shelter that, for more than two weeks, housed roughly 1,700 Central Americans planning to seek asylum in Texas.
Coahuila law enforcement sources revealed to Breitbart News that the majority of the migrants who obtained Mexican humanitarian visas moved west to the border states of Sonora and Chihuahua in hopes of crossing near El Paso and Arizona. Of the original 1,700, authorities believe less than 300 remain in Piedras Negras. It is unclear if they may try to cross the border through other, more remote areas.
Prior to their arrival in Piedras Negras, state officials ferried them by bus from points further south.
