The exodus of Haitians is worsening in Mexico with an increase in irregular migration 13 times greater than in 2022.

The drama of the exodus from Haiti is becoming more acute in Mexico, where asylum requests by Haitians climbed 157% year-on-year in 2023 and their irregular migration was nearly 13 times higher than that recorded last year. former.

The Migration Policy Unit of the Ministry of the Interior (SEGOB) reports having detected 41,705 irregular migrants from Haiti between January and November 2023, more than 13 times than the 2,910 Haitians detected during the same period in 2022.

In addition, Haiti replaced Honduras as the main country of origin of petitioners before the Mexican Commission for Refugee Assistance (COMAR), with 44,239, more than double the 17,220 requests from Haiti in 2022.

This means that more than one in three asylum requests out of the 140,982 asylum requests (record number) received by Mexico in 2023 came from Haitians.

However, it should be noted that unlike migrants of other nationalities who seek to reach the United States, a good number of Haitians are more willing to settle in Mexico.
