Mexico Puts On Job Fair For Migrants To Stay And Work In Country
A job fair is underway in Mexico, giving migrants a second chance to accept Mexico’s offer to stay and work in the country instead of going to the U.S.
The fair opened just south of the U.S. border in Tijuana Monday, providing work permits and a humanitarian visas to members of the caravan.
At least five companies took part in the event, mostly offering factory work, with more expected to join over the course of the month-long fair.
Mexican officials behind the event are hoping their efforts will cool tensions between locals and the migrants, following a string of violent incidents.
