Hundreds of African migrants in Mexico are protesting the country’s refusal to grant them transit visas to travel to the United States or Canada, where they want to apply for asylum. For months, thousands of African migrants have been forced by the Mexican government to stay in the southern state of Chiapas, on the Guatemalan border. Many of them have been sleeping in tent cities, cooking on the streets and bathing their children in buckets, without the promise of shelter, food or work permits. The long waits for African migrants began in June, when it was reported that Mexican immigration authorities were ignoring transit visa requests by African and Haitian migrants to legally cross through Mexico.

I'm just interested in numbers. A range perhaps? Based on figures you've seen?

Erm… why are they waiting for visas in Mexico, they must surely be aware that they're supposed to cross the border illegally? That’s poor etiquette from my fellow Africans.
