Mexican law enforcement officials deported two migrants traveling in the caravan that is headed for the U.S. border as they are reportedly fugitives wanted for their roles in a triple murder and drug trafficking.
“The arrest took place as part of a joint effort between Mexico’s Federal Police and the National Migration Institute (INM) in conjunction with Interpol, Mexico’s Secretariat of the Interior said,” journalists Brandon Darby and Ildefonso Ortiz reported. “The two men were part of the migrant caravan from Honduras and requested permission to travel through Mexico.”
Mexican authorities — in coordination with Interpol and the Honduran National Police — arrested and deported Adin Josué “N,” 21, and Juan Carlos “N,” 47, who are respectively accused of drug trafficking and being involved in murdering three people.
The deportations of both men come as Mexican officials have warned about the caravan, saying recently that “migrants attacked its agents with rocks, glass bottles and fireworks when they broke through a gate on the Mexican end but were pushed back, and some allegedly carried guns and firebombs,” according to the Daily Mail.
On Sunday, a migrant traveling in the caravan admitted to a reporter that he fled his home country of Honduras after he “got in trouble” for “attempted murder.”
Another migrant admitted to a reporter last week that there were “criminals everywhere” in the caravan, saying, “It’s criminals in here. It is.”
President Donald Trump released a video via Twitter on Wednesday that highlighted criminal illegal alien Luis Bracamontes, “who has been sentenced to death after he was found guilty of murdering two police officers.”
