Mexico, June 23, 2019:

Over 200 women among the migrants have been detected as pregnant who entered Mexico in the last four months over the southern border, which has been closed down this weekend by the National Guard as per official reports.

"We have detected over 200, many of whom continued on their way while the pregnancies of others were so far along they had to be taken to General Hospital," a senior official reportedly informed.

More than a dozen of babies have been born during this time, who are "Mexicans of foreign mothers", the official said with reference to the law that grants Mexican citizenship to anyone born in this country.

It is to be mentioned that as per the Mexican law, by having children born in Mexico, parents have the right to obtain citizenship. The healthcare official said that this helps straighten out the nation's migratory status.

Meanwhile, the National Guard has been deployed to all of Mexico's municipalities on the border with Guatemala, which has led to a diminishing flow of migrants, something Mexico is trying to achieve in order to keep the US from imposing tariffs on all its products.

On the banks of the Usumacinta River, the natural border between Mexico and Guatemala, the number of migrants has dropped considerably and only sporadic groups are to be seen trying to cross however they can.

According to regulations established by the National Institute of Migration, immigration procedures are slow and only allow the entry of foreigners with documents that clearly authorize their stay.
