Immigrants’ Rights Caravan Arrives in Mexico City

Mexico, Aug 1 (Prensa Latina) The “Step by Step Toward Peace” caravan arrives in this city on Monday to hold talks with the Senate, according to priest Alejandro Solalinde, an immigrant rights activist and director of the immigrant shelter “Brothers on the Way.” After traveling through the Mexican states usually traversed by undocumented Central American immigrants en route to the United States, the caravan members will present their demands for an end to immmigrant harassment and abuse.

On Monday morning, the group of over 600 immigrants and activists involved were in Puebla, where Solalinde gave a homily reiterating the vulnerability of those seeking to reach the U.S. border.

The over 600 demonstrators also met with the Inter-American Human Rights Commission (IHRC) representative Felipe Gonzalez, who is visiting 10 Mexican states used by immigrants on their way to United States.
