The Guardian speaks to photographer Edgard Garrido who travelled across Mexico with the Viacrucis Migrante convoy of central American people
The travelling caravan is an annual event that has been held around Easter since 2010. It aims to highlight the dangers migrants face, rather than to necessarily cross the border into the US, although many were expected to apply for asylum at the border. The final group of about 200 people were stopped in Tijuana with border authorities stating they could not accommodate them.
The Reuters photographer Edgard Garrido joined the caravan route and filed an impressive body of work from the journey. The stops made along the way are shown in the map above; Matas Romero, Puebla, Mexico City, Tultitln, Celaya, Irapuato, Tlaquepaque, Guadalajara, Mazatln, Hermosillo, San Luis Ro Colorado, Mexicali and, finally Tijuana.
