Group Says Migrant Voyage to the U.S. Increasingly Desperate
A bi-national human rights group that advocates on behalf of undocumented border crossers is in Los Angeles to raise awareness of the increasing desperation of migrants. Angels without Borders from Mexicali say the new Mexican government is making an already dehumanizing voyage even more difficult. They say Central Americans crossing through Mexico have it more difficult now that Mexican military have been stationed at both southern and northern borders. The group is touring Southern California to call for emergency humanitarian assistance and help for what it calls perhaps the most vulnerable people on earth. Pacifica KPFK’s Ernesto Arce has more from Los Angeles.
