About 1300 migrants staged a mass escape from an immigration holding facility in southern Mexico.
1000 or so Cuban migrants are reported to be on the run Friday in Mexico after a crowd burst out of a troubled immigration detention center.
The migrants reportedly streamed out of the compound without any resistance, as Mexico’s National Immigration Institute said its agents weren’t armed and “there was no confrontation.”

Approximately 1,300 migrants from Central America and Cuba rioted and broke out of an immigration holding facility in southern Mexico Thursday.
The incident began Thursday evening at the Century 21 station in Tapachula, Chiapas, Mexico’s National Immigration Institute announced in a prepared statement. The move was started by Cuban migrants who made up the majority of those held at the facility. In total, approximately 1,300 escaped.
The breakout was recorded on cell phone video and published by Azteca Noticias. In the video, dozens of migrants can be seen running out the doors of the facility. According to Mexican authorities, the facility did not have any measures to contain inhabitants.
Mexican authorities have not released any information about injuries during the riot and escape, however, they did reveal that approximately 700 later returned to the shelter. More
According to Fox News elsewhere in the country, a new caravan estimated to contain up to 10,000 migrants is making its way to the U.S.-Mexico border.
I wonder how fast the wall would go up if Democrats thought illegals would vote Republican? Since November all CNN could talk about was “The manufactured crisis on the border”, but today, it’s as real as can be.
Mexico is an enemy State @realdonaldtrump . Committing open acts of War against US, alongside @UN @GeorgeSoros @DNC . We are at risk of losing everything in short order. We know the end game. @POTUS must #CloseTheBorder #BuildTheWall #DeclareMexicoEnemy
