A Honduran migrant was shot dead on the night of July 31 in Saltillo, Coahuila. His name was Marcos, he was 29 years old and he was with his eight-year-old daughter, who saw him fall badly wounded. They both wanted to reach the United States and were part of a group of about 20 people had just left the Migrant House, intending to take the train and continue on its way north. Next stop was Piedras Negras.
The facts involved criminal investigation officers attached to the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE). Migrants point them to the sole perpetrators of the detonations, but the Prosecutor’s Office says there was a persecution of alleged nardo-nudists who have not been arrested, and that there were shots fired.
The killing comes after several weeks in which human rights organizations denounced the harassment that the Army and state police subjected to the Migrant House.
López Obrador said: “We are analyzing it; last time it was reported that it was a patrol (in the vicinity of hostels) that was not intended to enter the house.
Several civil society organizations, both Mexican and Central American, issued a statement demanding an investigation clarifying the facts, a punishment for the culprits and a review of immigration policy.
