Central American migrants on the US-Mexico border look forward to Biden's election

Description

Matamoros, Nov 9 (EFE).- Migrants who for more than a year have been living in a camp set up in the city of Matamoros along the Mexican side of the Rio Bravo - known in the US as the Rio Grande - are celebrating the victory of Democrat Joe Biden in the Nov. 3 US presidential election and are now hoping for the overturning of the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) and the ability to enter the US legally.The news of President Donald Trump's defeat in the election spread quickly through the improvised camp via word of mouth and WhatsApp groups, and expectations are high that the US stance on migration will change markedly after Biden takes office on Jan. 20, 2021. (Camera: MARCO ANTONIO RODRÍGUEZ).SHOT LIST: CENTRAL AMERICAN MIGRANTS CELEBRATE THE VICTORY OF US PRESIDENT-ELECT JOE BIDEN AND PREPARE A DONALD TRUMP DOLL AS A SYMBOLIC ACT OF REJECTION OF HIS GOVERNMENT, IN THE BORDER CITY OF MATAMOROS, MEXICO.

MELINA MEJIA, A HONDURAN MIGRANT. - I feel happy knowing that we have a new president who's going to value us because we've been suffering for a long time in the camp. We hope to accomplish what we wanted to. What we're hoping is that he'll help us because we don't want to be here any longer. We have come for the future of our kids.- My asylum request is being appealed. I presented evidence and nothing worked for me. We're hoping that this president can get things moving. 2. DENIS FLORES, A HONDURAN MIGRANT. - I'm almost sure that there are going to be more caravans to the US and especially from my country, Honduras, because our brothers there are devastated.
