Migrants on caravan climbed onto train to continue north. I've heard so many horrific stories of the violence they're fleeing in Central America. A mom showed me scars on her 6 yr old daughter's body. She was burned when gang set her home on fire. They want to seek asylum in US. pic.twitter.com/iCQ3wq7jOv— Leyla Santiago (@leylasantiago) April 14, 2018
Leyla Santiago of CNN reports on a "caravan" of migrants from Central America that provoked a twitterstorm by President Trump. The caravan reportedly had "dispersed" in Mexico City. The migrants have fled violence and turmoil.
However, Central American migrants rushed to the tracks yesterday when the first train whistle rang out. After a few days in Mexico City, the group continued the journey north. About 500 migrants traveling climbed on a freight train just outside the Mexican city of Tultitlán. As the train slowed down, migrants scrambled around the train cars to find a way to climb aboard, throwing small bags of belongings onto the train and hastily helping one another.
