Mexico Reports 2000 Irregular Migrants in One Day

The Mexican government recorded nearly 2,000 irregular multinational migrants who stayed in the country in just one day. 

The National Migration Institute’s (INM) control operations recorded exactly 1,957 migrants, where 532 of them were located in Oaxaca, 134 in Puebla, 86 in Veracruz, 58 in Chihuahua, 134 in Puebla, and the rest were found in other Mexican states. 

INM’s statement did not indicate what they did with the migrants. 

INM said that it is committed to ensuring a safe and orderly migration process in the country that is compliant to respecting people’s human rights. 

Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said that in order to avoid further migration influx, the United States should come to Central America’s aid. Ebrard added, “If the United States does not support Central America, it’s very hard to think that the migration flows that are happening will diminish.”
