6,000 Foreign Migrants Detained in Mexico in Less than a Week

Mexico’s National Migration Institute (INM) reported on Monday that it apprehended nearly 6,000 international migrants in a four-day period.

INM said that migrants from 42 nations were taken into custody, which included 1,060 Hondurans, 942 Cubans, and 906 Guatemalans.

According to the INM, the majority of the 5,688 migrants seized between April 21 and 24 were found in safe houses, trailers, or hidden in bus compartments or truck cabins.

In the United States, a record number of migrants attempted to enter the land border between the two countries, and US President Joe Biden’s sent envoys to Mexico and Panama in an attempt to address the core causes of migration.

Mexican immigration authorities apprehended 115,379 migrants from the beginning of the year through April 13, which denoted a dramatic increase in irregular migration.
