- Story Text: Migrants travelling through Mexico en route to the United States on Thursday (November 8) called on the Mexican government to help them on their journey north towards the U.S., as a second caravan advances through the southern state of Oaxaca.
Some 1,500 migrants of mostly Central American origin that formed a second caravan stopped at a local Oaxacan shelter in Matias Romero for food and rest.
Whilst some were grateful to Mexico for receiving passage and aid along the way, others were critical of President Enrique Pena Nieto who has promised temporary jobs to those who stay on in the country.
The caravan had incurred U.S. President Donald Trump's wrath in the lead up to this week's U.S. congressional elections, referring to the group as an "invasion". Trump has ordered 7,000 troops to the border to stall the migrants.
In Mexico City, members of the first migrant caravan protested outside the United Nation's offices in the capital for assistance.
Women, the elderly and children form a significant part of the caravan. Migrants say they are fleeing poverty and violence in their home states.
