Around 100 members of a refugee and migrant caravan traveling towards the US have reportedly fallen victim to organized crime as they moved through Mexico.

Thousands streamed into Mexico City on Monday to seek shelter in a sports stadium on the eve of US midterm elections in which Donald Trump has repeatedly warned about the advancing caravan and ordered thousands of troops to the border.

The article goes on to state the following:

But around 100 members, including children, did not arrive in Mexico City because they were kidnapped along the route and handed to organised crime groups, Arturo Peimbert, ombudsman for the human rights commission in Oaxaca, told HuffPost Mexico.

Mr Peimbert said they were kidnapped in the state of Puebla as they attempted to reach the capital from Veracruz.

    Not our problem! They’re not our people and it didn’t happen in our country so they should’ve thot about the risks before they started out on their caravan trip!! They should turn around before it’s too late!

    I’m sure they know the risk. What people won’t do to get free everything.
