Immigration authorities and border patrol will meet in northern Mexico

The INM commissioner, Francisco Garduño Yáñez, declared at a press conference that the objective is to coordinate efforts and not allow vulnerability for migrants

Given the increase in the migratory flow on the border of Mexico and the United States, the National Institute of Migration (INM), will have a meeting this Saturday with the border patrol.

The INM commissioner, Francisco Garduño Yáñez, declared at a press conference that the objective is to coordinate efforts and not allow migrants to become vulnerable.

The official went to the Mexican Ciudad Juárez, right on the border that divides both countries. Accompanied by 220 migration agents, he said that he will launch a campaign to invite the undocumented to take shelter from the low temperatures.

These actions are carried out within the framework of President Joe Biden’s upcoming visit to the city of El Paso, Texas, where he will address border law enforcement operations and meet with local officials from his country.

Garduño Yáñez told EFE that they seek human protection for migrants so that they attend the integration centers that the government has, so that they are treated there with food and shelter.

“We have worked with the border patrol for this type of security that migrants require, so that this migration problem does not exist. The United States is required to let them cross and Mexico cannot intervene in any matter regarding the decisions it makes in its immigration policy,” he pointed out.

He commented that, in one year throughout the country, 2,400 members of this government body have been fired for having engaged in corruption.

Given the increase in the migratory flow, the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, recently announced that he will insist in his next meeting with Biden on redoubling actions to address the causes that generate migration.

Just on Thursday, the US Government announced a new measure that dictates that those who do not meet the requirements will be expressly deported under Title 42, an immigration policy established by Donald Trump, under the pretext of the pandemic, and that the Supreme Court has ordered to maintain at least for the next few months.

The US government’s decision comes after the arrest of 2.76 million undocumented migrants was registered during the fiscal year of 2022, an unprecedented figure.

During 2022, according to data from the Mexican Commission for Aid to Refugees (Comar), Mexico received 118,478 petitions from migrants seeking asylum, the second highest figure after 2021 with 131,448 cases.
