Over 2,000 migrants storm refugee agency in southeast Mexico

More than 2,000 migrants stormed the offices of the Mexican Refugee Aid Commission (Comar) in southeast Mexico seeking refuge and support, authorities said Wednesday. 

The migrants had reportedly gathered outside the offices in Tapachula, Mexico’s main border city with Guatemala, since Monday, demanding refuge. They formed long lines in order to obtain a document that allows them to stay legally in the country.

Local authorities said that thousands of migrants, mostly Haitians, tore down metal fences and entered the site, where the National Guard and police were guarding the building.

Migration officials halted operations as a result of the turmoil. Authorities did not report any injuries following the break-in.
