Al sur de México, en un recóndito pueblo a más de 300 kilómetros de la frontera con Guatemala, opera un enorme campamento adonde miles de migrantes se preguntan cuál será su destino tras el reciente acuerdo para regular la llegada de venezolanos a Estados Unidos.

Cuando The Associated Press visitó San Pedro Tapanatepec —en el istmo y la parte más estrecha de México— en los primeros días de octubre, ya había allí unos 7.000 migrantes. El lunes, según su alcalde Humberto Parrazales, el número se había elevado a unos 14.000, el 75% venezolanos. La AP no pudo confirmar independientemente esta cifra.

Small town in southern Mexico hosts thousands of migrants

As migrants, especially Venezuelans, struggle to come to terms with a new U.S. policy discouraging border crossings, one small town in southern Mexico is unexpectedly playing host to thousands of migrants camped far from the U.S. border.

San Pedro Tapanatepec had 7,000 migrants, about 75% Venezuelans, when The Associated Press visited at the beginning of October. By Monday, Mayor Humberto Parrazales estimated the number had grown to 14,000. The AP could not independently verify that figure.

Aceptará México hasta 24 mil venezolanos expulsados de EU

17/10/2022

México aceptará hasta a 24 mil migrantes venezolanos expulsados de Estados Unidos. Al amparo del acuerdo anunciado la semana pasada por la Administración de Joe Biden, los venezolanos que crucen caminando o nadando la frontera sur de Estados Unidos serán expulsados y cualquier venezolano que ingrese ilegalmente a México o Panamá no será elegible para entrar a EU.

Pero hasta 24 mil venezolanos serán aceptados en los aeropuertos de Estados Unidos, de manera similar a como se ha admitido a los ucranianos desde la invasión de Rusia en febrero.

Y según un funcionario mexicano, el Gobierno del Presidente Andrés Manuel López Obrador exigió que EU admita a un venezolano por razones humanitarias por cada venezolano que expulse a México. Entonces, si la Administración Biden recibe a 24 mil venezolanos, México no aceptaría más de 24 mil venezolanos expulsados de Estados Unidos.

Biden to discuss immigration, trade with Mexico’s president

Source: AP News

7/12/2022

President Joe Biden is meeting with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Tuesday for discussions the White House says will showcase the underlying strength of a relationship that of late has been more notable for the leaders’ disagreements on issues including energy and Ukraine policy.

López Obrador declined Biden’s invitation to the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles last month after unsuccessfully urging the U.S. to include the leaders of Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela — all countries with anti-democratic regimes. The Mexican leader also has called U.S. support for Ukraine in its war with Russia “a crass error” and criticized the U.S. for moving more swiftly to provide military funding to Ukraine than financial aid to Central America.

Supreme Court allows Biden to end Trump-era ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy

07/01/2022

The Supreme Court handed President Joe Biden a victory Thursday, ruling that he can shut down a Trump administration program designed to restrict immigration at the southern border.

The court said in a 5-4 ruling that the Biden administration acted properly in seeking to end the “Remain in Mexico” policy, formally known as the Migrant Protection Protocols. It required people seeking asylum at the southern border, mainly from Central America, to wait in Mexico while their claims were decided.

What the tragedy in San Antonio reveals about migration from Mexico

06/29/2022

Source: The Washington Post

Soon after the horrific discovery of more than 40 dead migrants (the number would eventually grow to 53) and several injured inside a tractor-trailer in San Antonio, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) tried to use the tragedy to score a political point. “These deaths are on Biden,” Abbott tweeted. “They are a result of his deadly open border policies.”

His statement was disingenuous. In reality, the conditions that led dozens of human beings — including several children — to pile up inside a truck, without water or proper ventilation, is not the sole responsibility of the U.S. president. It is a failure shared by many regional actors, including the governor of Texas himself, who has made the dehumanization of the immigrant community a recurring political ploy.

Mexican immigration authorities said Thursday they found a veritable United Nations of migrants aboard a freight truck.

Mexico’s National Immigration Institute said the truck was carrying 366 migrants, including people from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Yemen, Uzbekistan and South Africa.

There were also people aboard from Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Venezuela.

Agents found the truck parked on the side of a road in the southern state of Chiapas, which borders Guatemala. There were so many migrants they were dangling their legs off the roof of the freight container.

Migrants split on whether to keep walking through Mexico

06/10/2022

A group of about 2,000 mainly younger male migrants set out walking Thursday from the southern town of Huixtla.

But about 1,000 migrants, mainly families with children, decided to wait in Huixtla to see if they could get some sort of temporary exit visa. The families were tired after walking some 25 miles since departing the city of Tapachula, near the Guatemalan border, on Monday.

The goal of almost all the migrants is to reach the U.S. border. But none of the migrant caravans that have crossed Mexico starting in 2018 have ever walked all the way to the border, which is over 1,000 miles to the north.
