Mexico to Offer Visas to Caravan Migrants, but Only 100 a Day

Source: WSJ

TECUN UMAN, Guatemala—Mexican authorities have agreed to grant humanitarian and asylum visas to a caravan of 3,000 Honduran migrants massing at the country’s southern border—but the authorities also appear to be breaking up the group into smaller pieces.

Ambassador Luis Manuel Lopez Moreno said migration authorities will allow some 100 migrants a day in to review their humanitarian and asylum requests.

The move ensures the migrants can enter Mexico legally until their cases are resolved, which normally takes a few months. If their cases are approved, they will be allowed to stay in Mexico permanently.

However, the migrants will be free to roam in Mexico, the envoy said. That means nothing prevents them from heading to the U.S. border and trying to enter while their cases are being heard in Mexico.
