The British Government is aware of reports of a caravan of Central American migrants that first attempted to enter Mexico from Guatemala on 18 January. Our Embassy in Mexico City is monitoring the situation closely. British Embassy officials visit migration shelters on Mexico’s southern and northern borders, and remain in close contact with Mexican authorities. During her visit to Mexico in September 2019, Baroness Williams discussed migration and human rights with Interior Minister, Olga Sanchez Cordero.
