Caravan of migrants climbs freight train for the next leg of the journey



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.
