PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Mexico — Tensions began to rise before dawn as some 2,000 migrants being housed in a shelter in this border city woke up to a massive show of force gathering outside.

Just beyond a chain-linked fence topped with barbed wire, hundreds of Mexican federal, state and local law enforcement officers – clad in riot gear and armed with automatic weapons – stood vigilantly.

The article goes on to state the following:

Military police soldiers marched in formation in the street behind them.

“Why are they there? We are not criminals,” shouted one migrant inside the fenced-in area.

Migrants are housed inside a warehouse, provided with food, blankets and healthcare but have not been allowed to come and go at will. Mexican officials said the tough stance was needed to ensure their safety.

According to video shared on Twitter, one group of migrants made a mad dash for the unfenced border after getting off the buses when they first arrived.  From the video, it appears they may have made it across to the U.S. side.  This is not yet confirmed.
