The fire that broke out on Monday night and caused the death of 39 migrants, originated after a burning of mattresses to protest a possible deportation, assured President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

In his conference this Tuesday, March 28th, the President explained that inside the ranch, a group of undocumented migrants set fire to some mattresses to express their refusal to be returned to their countries of origin, but it got out of control.

At about 9:30 at night, a fire broke out in a migrant shelter at the border in Ciudad Juarez and the outcome was 39 migrants dead.
