The migrant caravan has halted in Mexico after reports that a child was abducted. The Daily Caller reports:
The organizers of the train of thousands of Central American migrants headed for the United States advised the travelers to take a break Sunday after hearing that a child had been abducted somewhere along the way.
Several migrants reported a child missing late Saturday night, according to The Associated Press, causing the caravan to decide to temporarily pause for a meeting in Tapanatepec, a southwestern Mexican town about a thousand miles from the U.S. border.
The report also states that the Mexican government appeared to be directly helping the migrants in their travels. The Grupo Beta, Mexico’s migrant protection agency, was seen giving rides to stragglers and distributing water.
At the caravan’s regular evening meeting, a nun reportedly reprimanded the men in the group who often take advantage first of the trucks that offer rides, saying they should instead let the women and children hop in.
This is just another reason why lawless caravans are a bad idea, as opposed to applying for asylum in United States embassies and consulates.
