Haiti - Politic : The migration of Haitians on the agenda of Mexico and the USA
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken visited Mexico on Friday to present a new joint security plan and restore ties with an ally increasingly used by the Biden administration as a buffer to stem the flow of migrants heading to the United States.

At a press conference united US Secretary of State Blinken alongside Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard warned Haitian migrants that they will not be able to reach the United States illegally, while the Mexican Minister Marcelo Ebrard, said that many Haitians who have traveled South America to the border have been deceived into thinking that they could easily obtain legal status in the United States.

Recall that the United States has already repatriated more than 7,500 Haitians https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34953-haiti-news-zapping.html in Haiti in 3 weeks while allowing others to continue the process migration to the United States. For its part, Mexico has also recently started voluntary repatriation flights in Haiti https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34939-haiti-migration-mexico-repatriates-129-haitians.html

For the thousands of Haitians currently in an irregular migratory situation in Mexico, Ebrard said his country could offer them asylum. "If 15,000 people come from Haiti, want to work and want to be here, it is not a problem for Mexico," said Ebrard, adding however that finding employment opportunities was not easy adding that "The Mexico's asylum agency has been strained by the growing number of applications from Haitians, many of whom are unlikely to be granted refugee status because they left Haiti for economic reasons. "

Note that on the migratory front, cooperation between Mexico and the United States has strengthened, thus, migrants are prohibited from traveling by bus in Mexican territory if they do not have proper papers. However, many trucks that come to deliver goods to Mexico go back empty to the United States and carry migrants. A lucrative traffic for the crime which organizes its trips when it is not the drivers themselves who to make more money transport the illegal migrants.
