Migrants in US-bound caravan say they’ll accept deal for Mexican visas (Rafael Bernal, The Hill)

Thousands of migrants who had organized a U.S.-bound caravan have taken a deal to disband their group in exchange for visas to stay in Mexico, according to a report by Reuters.

The caravan had recently left the southern Mexican city of Tapachula, traveling as a group to defend themselves against criminals and potential harassment from authorities. The migrants, traveling by foot, had walked about 30 miles from Tapachula to the town of Mapastepec, both in the hot and humid coastal region of the southern state of Chiapas.
