The caravan emigrates from southern Mexico to the United States

(CNN) – According to a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, a group of about 2,300 people left for the United States on Monday from the southern Mexican city of Dabachula.

The official told CNN that the group consisted primarily of Venezuelans but also immigrants from Nicaragua, Cuba, El Salvador and Honduras.

Coletivo de Observación y Monitoreo de Derechos Humanos en el SE México, a regional immigration group, said in a bulletin that the group’s mainly families and children should be “treated with dignity by immigration procedures and authorities”.

Located across the border from Guatemala, Dabachula is a popular destination for immigrants from Central America.

Under Mexican immigration laws, immigrants and asylum seekers are often forced to wait several months in the region with fewer jobs.
