Lawmakers visit African migrants at US-Mexico border
By Rafael Berner

Although many reports indicate there are more migrants from Africa and the Caribbean transiting through Mexico and many are stranded in the interior or south of the country the number of those put into MPP remains small. According to Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, only a dozen citizens of African nations were in MPP as of September of last year out of more than 17,000 migrants in the program. But the bottleneck created by increased immigration enforcement in Mexico and MPP has led to crowding in northern Mexico's migrant shelters.
