Haiti - Politic : 200 illegal Haitian migrants intercepted in Mexico, returned to Guatemala
At dawn on Saturday September 11, around 200 Haitian migrants out of a total of nearly 400 who entered Mexico illegally via the Suchiate river, were captured during a strong operation by the National Institute of Migration (INM) and of the National Guard (GN) in San Nicolás Lagartero (located in the municipality of Tapachula in the state of Chiapa) and deported to Guatemala without any immigration protocol...

Haitians, men, children, pregnant and breastfeeding women, entered Mexico irregularly by the Suchiate River guided by a smuggler. They crossed the forests, avoided the roads and took bypass paths to San Nicolás Lagartero, at the entrance to the municipal capital of Tapachula, where 500 officers from INM and the GN National Guard were waiting for them.

Almost half of the Haitian group managed to escape, but the first to be captured were the families who did not put up resistance.

Haitians were transported in vans and buses to the Talismán border, in the municipality of Tuxtla Chico, about 15 kilometers from Tapachula, under strong security.

On the spot, a hundred immigration officers, in 2 rows, forced Haitians to take this human "corridor" to Guatemalan territory, along the El Carmen border, without reception or health protocol.

The Haitians entered the neighboring country under the indifferent gaze of three Guatemalan soldiers, without being asked for papers or their state of health being checked or registered by the authorities.

Recall that for more than a month, the Government of Mexico, through the INM, has implemented operations, often violent https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34658-haiti-mexico-muscular-interception-of-migrants-dozens-of-haitians-arrested-video.html and installed checkpoints on the highway from Ciudad Hidalgo (a town on the border with Guatemala) to Tapachula to stop Haitian migrants who are trying to reach this city.
