At least 200 Central Americans who attempted to migrate into the U.S. as part of a “caravan” traveling through Mexico will file to seek asylum in the U.S., despite the group being the subject of Donald Trump’s ire.

The caravan stopped in Mexico City on Monday and organizers said the number of people who want U.S. asylum is more than double than what they were anticipating. Rodrigo Abeja, a coordinator from Pueblo Sin Fronteras, a transnational organization that staged the caravan, said other migrants had chosen to stay in Mexico.
