Halted Hospitality

Children are missing meals as support dries up for thousands of Central American migrants making their way across southern Mexico.

In earlier waves, caravans traveling the route encountered local officials, religious groups and passers-by who offered reinforcements through food, shelter, rides and even temporary work permits. That assistance is getting harder to come by as the US White House pressures Mexico to stop migrants from reaching the US border, threatening fresh tariffs on Mexican-made automobiles.

Truck drivers who once offered lifts have been warned that they could face fines for transporting migrants without proper documentation.
