WATCH: Migrants Riot and Burn at Mexican Immigration Station

There was a riot at an immigration station in Tapachula, Mexico on Wednesday morning.

Daily Caller reported migrants staged a riot at an immigration station in Tapachula, Mexico early Wednesday morning, multiple Mexican media outlets reported.

The group of migrants, mostly from Cuba and Africa, staged the riot to prevent authorities from carrying out deportations, Mexican media outlets Noticias MVSMilenio and Reforma reported.

The migrants reportedly ransacked the building and set some documents on fire before authorities were able to regain control.

Video from the riot’s aftermath shows authorities milling around outside the building, trying to corral the migrant population.

Tapachula sits near Mexico’s southern border with Guatemala, making it a pressure point in the ongoing immigration crisis.

Tapachula’s immigration station has been the site of ongoing protests from migrants and activists over alleged mistreatment and poor living conditions.

The day before the riot, dozens of African migrants reportedly blocked the gate leading in and out of the immigration center, in protest of poor living conditions and inattention from authorities.
