Mexican railway operator halts trains because so many migrants are climbing aboard and getting hurt

  • Due to an increase in the number of migrants attempting to ride the trains, a Mexican railway operator has temporarily suspended train runs in the northern part of the country. This decision was made to protect the physical safety of the migrants, as there have been several cases of injuries or deaths recently.
  • The company reported large gatherings of migrants at rail yards in Torreon and Irapuato, with approximately 1,500 and 800 people respectively. Additionally, around 1,000 people were riding freight cars on the train line connecting Chihuahua and Ciudad Juarez. This highlights the desperation of migrants trying to reach the U.S. Border.
  • Mexico is facing an overwhelming number of asylum applications this year, with an estimated 150,000 expected. This surpasses the previous record of 129,000 in 2021. The situation with migrants at the U.S. Border continues to escalate, with increasing numbers using Mexico as a transit country.
