    Roughly 3,500 mainly Central American migrants have been stuck for nearly a month in Coatzacoalcos, a city in the Mexican Gulf coast state of Veracruz, according to the Mesoamerican Migrants Movement.

    A freight train, known as “The Beast,” used by many Central Americans to reach central Mexico on the long trek to the United States, derailed on June 17 between Medias Aguas and Tierra Blanca, Veracruz.
