These Central and South American migrants who have sewn their mouths shut in an effort to show the severity of their situation to the National Migration Institute are seeking passage into the country so they can eventually reach the United States.

Activist Irineo Mujica said, “The migrants are sewing their lips together as a sign of protest. We hope that the National Migration Institute can see that they are bleeding, that they are human beings.”

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information is available.
