In the Mexican state of Veracruz, around 790 Central American migrants have been arrested, including nearly 370 children under the age of eight. The migrants, most of them from Guatemala and Honduras, were hiding in four trucks, the Mexican immigration office said on Sunday.

According to government sources, six suspected smugglers were arrested.

The eastern Mexican state of Veracruz is considered to be particularly dangerous to migrants – as well as one of the main routes for drug smuggling into the United States.

America’s President Donald Trump had put massive pressure on Mexico to stop migrants en route to the United States, and threatened punitive tariffs on southern neighbors.

The governments of both countries finally adopted a migration agreement on 7 June.

Mexico undertook to deploy 6000 national guards on its southern border in the fight against illegal immigration. After 45 days, an interim report on the new migration policy is planned.
