A caravan of migrants arrives in southern Mexico


TAPACHULA, Mexico — Several thousand migrants set out in the rain early Monday in southern Mexico, tired of waiting to normalize their status in a region with little work and still far from their ultimate goal of reaching the United States.

Their advocates said they wanted to draw attention to their plight, timing it with this week’s Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles. It was estimated to have had between 4,000 and 5,000 migrants, mostly from Central America, Venezuela and Haiti.
