Haiti - FLASH : More than 7,000 Haitians seeking refugee status in Mexico
In fear of the migratory measures that the new US President, Donald Trump, wants to apply, more than 7,000 Haitians locked in the state of "Baja California", in Mexico, seek refugee status in Mexico, more than 10,000 in total in Mexico https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19478-haiti-flash-thousands-of-haitians-seek-refuge-in-mexico.html

Wilmer Metelus, leader of the Citizen Defense Committee of the naturalized African-Mexican, said at a conference that Haitians in Mexico do not want to cross the border into the United States, seeing the resumption of evictions conducted every 15 day https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-18700-haiti-flash-usa-resumption-of-regular-deportations-to-haiti.html , they seek refuge in Mexico "we are asking for the help of the Mexican State," said Metelus, pointing out that in Baja California, "there is no office to apply for Refugee status, the Mexican Commission of Assistance to Refugees (COMAR) has only offices in Chiapas and Mexico City, which complicates the demand for the Haitians," adding "Mexico has always been a friendly country, we should not return the Haitians in Haiti because there is no job."

Metelus Wilmer recalls that in the US Migration Detention Centers, at least 4,000 Haitians are under the influence of a return to Haiti https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19929-haiti-flash-thousands-of-haitians-will-be-expelled-from-the-usa.html . In summary, about 10,000 Haitians are blocked in Mexico, on the border of Nicaragua and Costa Rica, there are more than 8,000, more than 2,500 on the border of Panama and Colombia and their number ceases to grow and more than 5,000 in detention centers for migrants to United States.
