The agency said that there were 68 people from Central and South America in the holding center at the time of the fire.

The official from Guatemala said that many of the people in the holding center could also be from Guatemala. President Obrador said that when the migrants in the holding center found out they were going to be sent back to their home countries, they started to protest. But he had no idea that something so terrible would happen in the middle.

After the event, the President said, the head of the country’s immigration office went to the scene. He said that the detention center is not far from the line between the US and Mexico. There has been tension between the officers and the people who live in the center for the last few days.
