Amid pressure from Washington, Mexico is back-pedalling on promises of better treatment for Central American migrants, leaving hundreds stranded in unsanitary camps near its southern border and allegations of irregular detentions. Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador promised more humane treatment for Central American migrants when he took office in December. His left-leaning government issued thousands of year-long humanitarian visas in January, giving migrants legal access to jobs and the right to travel to the United States. However, caught off guard by a surge in arrivals, Lopez Obrador's administration is resorting to old tactics based on tough law enforcement.

He wants to have here sick children, children with dengue, many children dying from hunger, people here with no money to eat." Dozens of activists took part in a protest to demand justice for the death of migrant children, outside the U.S. Border Patrol custody in El Paso on Saturday (May 25). Holding up a huge banner that read: "Stop killing kids!" and chanting: "No more deaths," protesters - led by Border Network for Human Rights - said President Donald Trump's policies were to be blamed for the death of six migrant children. Activists also decried what they called "the inhumanity of the Trump administration." In May, a boy was the fifth Guatemalan minor since December to die after being apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border. Four of them died while in U.S. custody. A fifth child, who crossed the border with his mother in April, died this month after weeks in the hospital, but had already been released from U.S. custody at the time of his death.

But now it has been tasked with patrolling the border to placate President Donald Trump, who has demanded Mexico stem the flow of U.S.-bound Central Americans that pass through the country or risk tariffs on Mexican goods.
