Headline: AMERICA/MEXICO – Mexico is the main destination for Central American migrants
Tapachula – Mexico’s border with Guatemala, which had been closed due to the pandemic, was reopened a few days ago, and the number of migrants arriving in Mexico is already increasing. The note sent to Fides from the Mexican diocese of Tapachula indicates that the diocesan “Casa Albergo Belen” is welcoming groups of families with illnesses. Msgr. Jaime Calderón Calderón, Bishop of the diocese of Tapachula, says that “the pastoral care of hospitality tries to do everything possible in this moment of need. Unfortunately, there are families with health problems. There are also pregnant women, children and elderly people”. The Bishop underlines that the diocese of Tapachula is faithful to Pope Francis’ invitation to “welcome, protect, promote and integrate migrants and refugees into our society”.
