Another caravan of Mexican migrants set off for Christmas, but now south of the border. Poor Central American migrants who form caravans to fight off predatory gangs as they cross part of Mexico on their way to the United States have become aware of high-profile headlines and angered President Donald Trump.

Driving large cars laden with clothes, perfumes and other Christmas presents, Mexicans with all US legal status scantily reminded Central American migrants walking north, except for their common fear of criminal gangs.
