A caravan of migrants in Southern Mexico is on its way toward the U-S  border.

Mexican officials say the latest caravan includes about 12-hundred migrants from Central America and Cuba.

Traveling on foot with a police escort, the group was making its way through Southern Mexico’s Chiapas State Tuesday.

This route has been followed by previous caravans heading north.

The new Mexican government of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has pledged to curb the migrant flows.

He promised better regulation of the caravans… and offers of job opportunities and better pay for those willing to stay in Mexico.
