A group of more than 2,600 Central American migrants arrived in Mexico City this week; forcing Mexican Marines to provide food, shelter, and healthcare to the potential asylum seekers as they make their way north towards the US border.

“As dawn breaks at an outdoor sports stadium here, Mexican Marines are busy cooking beef, eggs and beans for the 2,673 migrants that have arrived here,” writes Fox News. “More are expected to arrive this week.”

“Upon arrival, they receive blankets, shelter, heath care, sanitary amenities and hot meals. They are housed in three massive tents inside the sports complex, are protected by around the clock security and have access to a soccer field and playground,” adds the author.

Mexican authorities are currently offering the migrants ‘Temporary Asylum’ that would permit them to remain in the country for a maximum of one year.
