TAPACHULA, Mexico —Thousands of migrants traveling in a caravan toward the U.S. border decided to continue on foot across the isthmus of Mexico Thursday toward Veracruz after an arrangement to travel by bus directly to Mexico City fell through, coordinators announced late Wednesday.
The coordinators blamed the Mexican federal government with blocking a plan to have buses transport migrants to the capital, forcing the caravan to take a well-traveled route through Veracruz that will expose migrants to violent attacks by criminal organizations.
Veracruz is notorious for violent criminal smuggling organizations that seek to extort migrants or sell them to drug-trafficking organizations that seek to enlist or force them to work in the drug trade.
“Today there was the possibility to have 70 buses from various sources of support that under pressure of the Mexican government withdrew their support, leaving the exodus no choice but to continue on foot towards Veracruz, a state of high risk of violence at the hands of criminal organizations,” coordinators said in a written statement.
