Haiti - Social : Haitians try to escape from a temporary shelter in Mexico
On Tuesday, some 100 migrants of Haitian and African origin tried, for the third time since the beginning of the month, to escape from the temporary shelter of the "Feria Mesoamericana", a detention center for illegal migrants waiting the study of their request, in the city of Tapachula, in the State of Chiapas in south Mexico on the border of Guatemala.

The attempt once again failed, the National Guard of the National Institute of Migration (INAMI) and the Federal Police have once again prevented them from fleeing...

According to testimonies collected by Mexican journalists, the migrants, some of whom have been in this detention center for more than 10 days, are demanding medical care, mainly for mothers and minors, food and an improvement in the migratory procedures of which they complain the delays in processing their request...

According to the version of the INAMI, it was only "agitation" resulting from the nervousness and impatience of migrants after several days spent in the Center. In addition, the INAMI contradicts the migrants and ensures that there are doctors on site and food... Who says true...?

Recall that since the last four months of 2018, the entry of migrants of different nationalities into Mexico has increased along the southern border with Guatemala, mainly from Central American countries, Haiti, Cuba and Africa.

Given the increase in the number of irregular migrants and asylum seekers arriving in the United States, Donald Trump has threatened Mexico to impose tariffs on all Mexican products if Mexico does not fight more against illegal migration. After a week of negotiations in Washington, an agreement was announced on June 7 that plans to send 6,000 men from the National Guard of Mexico to the southern border, among other measures to contain migration. In return, the United States has withdrawn for the moment its threat of tariffs.
