Migrants sleeping on Paso Del Norte Bridge at El Paso border moved to Juárez shelter

More than 100 migrants who were sleeping on the Paso Del Norte Bridge waiting to enter the United States have been taken to a Juárez immigrant shelter, officials said.

The migrants were moved for safety and health reasons ahead of the arrival of freezing overnight temperatures in the region, Juárez Mayor Armando Cabada said in a statement.

Small groups of migrants that have arrived in Juárez and are not part of the Central American migrant caravans traveling through Mexico, possibly heading toward Tijuana, Cabada said.

For two weeks, asylum-seeking migrants, mostly from Central America and Cuba, had been sleeping on the Mexican side of the international bridge connecting Downtown El Paso and Juárez.
