Mexican Caravan Traveled In Opposite Direction Of US For Christmas Holiday

JASON HOPKINS IMMIGRATION AND POLITICS REPORTER

 

A caravan made up of Mexican nationals traveled south, leaving the United States, in order to safely enter Mexico and visit family for the Christmas holiday.

A caravan of roughly 1,500 Mexican families convened at the southern Texas city of Laredo earlier this month and set off across the border, according to a report from Reuters. Unlike many of the high-profile caravans that travel north in order to enter the U.S., this large group traveled south, leaving the U.S. This caravan also differed from others in that, instead of being made up of individuals moving on foot, these south-bound travelers rode in large vehicles stuffed with clothes, Christmas presents, and other items, according to Reuters.
