More Migrants Escape Tapachula Center

A new mass escape from the migrant detention center in Tapachula, Chiapas, Mexico, occurred on Sunday.

On April 26, we reported on a mass escape by 1300 detained migrants, most of them Cuban, from the over-crowded facility.  The escape on Sunday was smaller–90 escapees–but also involved Cubans, who broke out of the facility in the early morning hours, causing minor damage.

There is no word yet on the whereabouts of the escapees, who are presumed to have continued their northward trek to the United States. Most of the April escapees either returned or were recaptured, and Mexico last week began deporting some back to Cuba.
