Residents of the Mexican city Tapachula are upset about undocumented immigrants causing crime, according to a Tuesday report from El Universal.
The report documents a press conference held in Tapachula by a leader of a local group called: “For a different Mexico.”
The group’s president, Victorino Alvarez Fuentes, claims that immigrants have been urinating in public and sexually assaulting women and children.
Tapachula is located near the Guatemalan border and there has been a recent expansion of African immigrants entering Mexico there, hoping to get to the United States.
The El Universal story centered around a residence for immigrants ironically called “Bethlehem.”
Reportedly, just a couple of weeks ago an immigrant from “Bethlehem” was arrested for sexually assaulting a 5 year-old boy.
