A group of women from the Central American migrant caravan are calling for a hunger strike, asking for faster processing by the U.S. and Mexican authorities. The group plans to demonstrate outside the offices of Mexico’s National Immigration Institute in Tijuana.

The protest is expected to have a group of approximately 10 women who will stop eating if their demands are not met, Mexico’s Frontera.Info reported.

The group is asking for U.S. authorities to expedite their asylum claims as well as asking Mexico to provide visas and other documents. They also demand an end to deporting caravan members.

Buzzfeed’s Adolfo Flores said the protest will be held at the Chaparral border crossing. The port of entry is the same where a group of caravan members tried to rush the U.S. border.
