The caravan will depart from Bicentennial Park in Tapachula and hopes to reach Mexico City.

The coordinator of the Human Dignification Center (CDH), Luis Rey García Villagrán, said that through the “Way of the Cross,” they will denounce that in Tapachula, on the border with Central America, there is nothing for migrants.

To demand better immigration policies from the federal government, about 3,000 people will participate in the “migrant Way of the Cross,” which will start from Chiapas next Monday, affirmed the Human Dignification Center (CDH).

The coordinator of the CDH, Luis Rey García Villagrán, said that through the “Way of the Cross,” they will denounce that in Tapachula, on the border with Central America, there is nothing for migrants because there is still a “human knot” and “inadequate” policies in the face of pressures from the United States to Mexico.

“The majority are Central American companions, but I am sure that more people from Haiti, Venezuela, and Cuba, who have their procedures stopped, will join us. If they stay in Tapachula, they will have to wait about six months to a year because there are no conditions (to attend to them),” said the activist.

He indicated that in this ‘migrant Way of the Cross,’ they will represent the passion of Christ with a wooden cross to represent the suffering that foreigners go through on the southern border of Mexico.

According to the CDH, the caravan will depart from Bicentennial Park in Tapachula and hopes to reach Mexico City.
