The first Central American caravan of this year, has arrived in Mexico City, with high hopes of reaching the El Dorado of the United States.Many originally say they just wanted to settle in Mexico.But the majority want to reach the Land of Opportunity.From what has happened before, many are fully aware and under no illusions that they're not welcome in the United States, but can no longer tolerate the life they've left behind.With little more than the clothes on their back, plus a bagpack and some threadbare sandals, they’ve decided to test the unknown.James Blears met some of them upon their arrival in Mexico City in this report.
