TAPACHULA, Mexico (Reuters) - Several hundred migrants from Africa, the Caribbean and Central America set off from southern Mexico on Saturday in a caravan headed to the United States, according to a Reuters witness and local media.

The migrants assembled and departed before dawn from Tapachula in the southern state of Chiapas near Guatemala despite an ongoing crackdown on migration on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. They proceeded on foot toward Huixtla about 20 miles (32 km) away.

The Border Crisis Isn’t Over, And Mexico Isn’t Going To Fix It

  The Border Crisis Isn’t Over, And Mexico Isn’t Going To Fix It Migrant apprehensions are down but overall numbers are higher than they’ve been since 2007, and thanks to Congress the United States has no long-term solution to the border crisis. That will require a U.S. Congress willing to look at the problem honestly, set politics aside, and do something about our broken immigration system. Until that happens, we should expect Mexican cooperation to flag as time goes on, and come springtime, for the numbers to increase once again.

The scene was reminiscent of a string of caravans that left Central America a year ago, at one point ballooning into a group of 7,000 people in southern Mexico. The en masse migration drew extensive media attention and triggered a crisis with U.S. President Donald Trump, who called the caravans an "invasion" and demanded Mexico do more to halt their progress.

Arrests at the U.S.-Mexico border fell in September for the fourth month in a row, after record high crossings this Spring, and the Trump administration credited cooperation from Mexico and Central American countries for the sustained drop.
