In this May 17, 2012 photo, migrants, mostly from Honduras, watch a southbound train pass by as they wait for one going north, in Lecheria, on the outskirts of Mexico City. While the number of Mexicans heading to the U.S. has dropped dramatically, a surge of Central American migrants is making the 1,000-mile northbound journey this year, fueled in large part by the rising violence brought by the spread of Mexican drug cartels.
