Mexico to deport group that stormed U.S. border

Mexico’s interior ministry said in a statement that a group of “nearly 500 migrants” had “tried to cross the border in a violent way” at El Chaparral border crossing.

Those identified as having taken part in these “violent events” would be deported immediately, he said.

The ministry added that, “far from helping their objectives”, the migrants’ actions had violated the legal migration framework and could have led to a “serious incident”.
