By African I assume they only mean black and probably from the Caribbean islands?
Nope...it's all in the article.

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.

For African migrants, the journey to Mexico often takes months as they cross the ocean to reach South America and then embark on a dangerous trek through the Colombian jungle and multiple Central American borders.

Not just me...everybody sees right through you already.

Any perception of a person is created by that person...
Admit it, you saw my name and got triggered. I tried to explain myself several posts above but you persist with your garbage. I've since read several articles and none quote any figures. It seems I'm barred from asking questions.

BS...you kept harping and demanding that ONLY Mineer should answer you.

Why, if you only wanted figures?

You're SO full of schit, it's unbelievable. Luckily more and more are not only noticing, but also starting to react to your day-to-day stirring.

Believe whatever the voice in your head tells you. If it's not enough, you can go hang. :)

You saw my name and got triggered. I tried to be reasonable but you persist with your conspiracy garbage.

Between 100 and 3000? I was hoping he'd provide figures.
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
100's are protesting out of the thousands that are present.
Not all of them are actively protesting.

I just wanted an approximate figure to weigh the extend of the problem. Last night when I read the article, I was trying to figure out how these thousands crossed the Atlantic without being detected. I have since read more articles to try and make sense of the developing crisis.

Why can't they apply for asylum in Mexico?

Actually, why did they have to fly across an ocean in order to do this? There are peaceful countries like Namibia and Botswana that take people for asylum that would be far easier to get into.

Oh right, it is because the US is the Colossal welfare state and provides the gibs.
Indeed. Same reason why people from Syria and surrounds travel through up to 10 different, peaceful countries before they get into Sweden, etc.

I can't think of anytime @ForceFate hasn't given a valid response to something. It's actually you that completely twists things to suit your own agenda. I've never seen you conceded that you are wrong in some cases.

The point of a forum is to air your opinions and understanding of a topic and then have meaningful discussions about the topic hopefully coming to an agreement or in the least understanding each others point of view.

I really don't see how asking for exact numbers deserves 3 pages of pushing your own agenda.
