Bulk of migrant caravan prepares to depart Mexico City

MEXICO CITY — Almost 4,000 Central American migrants are preparing to depart a stadium in southern Mexico City for the longest and most dangerous leg of a trek to the U.S. border that has drawn fire from President Donald Trump.

The bulk of the caravan will follow the roughly 900 migrants who left Mexico City Friday, and many were impatient to get going early Saturday after having spent much of the week in the sports complex.

“Let’s go, let’s go!” shouted Eddy Rivera, 37, a Honduran migrant who said he couldn’t take staying in the camp any longer.

The plan was to take a subway to the northern part of Mexico’s capital, then proceed first to Queretaro, followed by Guadalajara, Culiacan and Hermosillo until the migrants arrive in Tijuana on the U.S. border.
