QUERETARO, Mexico (AA) – Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Friday that the country will offer about 4,000 jobs to migrants in a caravan who are making their way up north.

The president said the caravan has between 2,500 and 3,000 migrants from Honduras and El Salvador. Mexico, he said, has plenty of jobs available for them in the southern border region between the country and Guatemala.

“There is a way for them to have work. My ideal is full employment – work for everyone… and the right to work guaranteed,” he said in a Friday morning press conference.

He did not specify what the jobs were, but he said the positions would also be available to Mexican nationals.

Mexico has cracked down on the flow of migration to the United States since U.S. President Donald Trump threatened tariffs in May.

In September, the Mexican government announced it had cut migration to the U.S. by about 56%.

This is the first caravan of the new year.
