Francisco Rueda Gómez, the Secretary General of the Mexican Government, announced that out of 2,400 Haitian citizens blocked in Baja California who have applied for regularization, 1,100 have already received permits legalizing their migratory situation on Mexican territory.

He explained that of the 1,100 Haitians living in Tijuana and Mexicali who received legal documents provided by the National Institute of Migration (Instituto Nacional de Migración - INAMI), 500 have a legal residence permit in Mexico and 600 have a temporary work permits.

The Secretary General said that 60% of migrants continue to live in shelters managed by civil associations.

He said that in recent days he attended a meeting sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Consul of Haiti in Mexico, Jorge Watanabe and the Ambassador of Haiti, Guy Lamothe, for in coordination, urge Haitian migrants to regularize their situation.

The Mexican Government, confronted with the importance of the migration wave, is studying the possibility of opening a consulate in Tijuana, said Haitian Ambassador Guy Lamothe to the local press. This initiative would facilitate the process of regularization of our compatriots and avoid traveling through the territory of a large number of migrants.
