There is no letup in the arrival of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border. They travel from faraway places to reach the United States. This is the most favored destination for many of them, and they join the caravans and walk hundreds of miles to reach the border. They move as families with their children and their intention is to make a new beginning in America.

Mexican National Migration Institute (INM) said they discovered 600 migrants hidden in two trailers. Police officers intercepted them while carrying out checks in southeastern Mexico. It happened in Ixhuatlán, Veracruz, soon after federal cops pulled over the truck drivers near a highway tollbooth.

Some occupants of the vehicles fled from the scene. Mexico's National Institute of Migration said majority of them were from Guatemala. The remaining were a mix from countries like Honduras, Dominican Republic, Bangladesh, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Cuba, Ghana, Venezuela, Ecuador, India and Cameroon.

The migrants include children, pregnant women and ill people

It was a huge lot of migrants from different corners of the world. They included children and women in need of medical care because many of them were pregnant. The authorities moved them to a National Institute of Migration station in Acayucan for processing and medical treatment. The breakdown of the migrants was 455 male and 145 female.

Increase in the number of death of migrants

According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, July witnessed the highest number of arrests at the U.S.-Mexico border in two decades U.S. There have been arrests of more than 1 million migrants during the period between October 2020 and June 2021. As a result, the Americans ran ads in the radio in Central America to try to deter people from migrating. Incidentally, there is a spike in the number of deaths registered by the U.S. Border Patrol in the 2021 fiscal year compared to 2020.
