Mexican Authorities Arrest 135 Migrants in Border State Hotel
Mexican authorities detained 135 Central American migrants headed for Texas who were weathering the recent winter storm in a Nuevo Leon hotel. The arrests come as authorities note a spike in human smuggling activities.
Late last week, Mexico’s National Immigration Institute carried out the operation at the Palacio Hotel in downtown Monterrey where they found 135 migrants, including 49 minors, and some as young as 2-years-old. The group also included 43 women and 43 men, all from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala.
