Mexico begins processing migrants under the ‘You are in your home’ plan

The Ministry of the Interior (Segob), through the National Institute of Migration (INM) and the Mexican Commission for Assistance to Refugees (COMAR), delivered temporary CURPs, an equivalent to a social security number, to 111 migrants, as a result of the plan ‘You are in your home’, announced this Friday by President Enrique Peña Nieto.

In a statement, they informed that the CURP will allow them to remain with a regular in Mexico legally and gives them the possibility of having a paid job during the time they are applying for a more permanent solution with COMAR.

The Government of Mexico reiterates its commitment to respect the human rights of foreigners entering the national territory, regardless of their immigration status.

He also noted that these actions are part of the support of the Government of the Republic to migrants who entered the national territory in an irregular manner, last weekend, by the border bridge of the Suchiate River in Ciudad Hidalgo, Chiapas.

He said that with the accompaniment of staff of the Office in Mexico of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the beneficiaries of the plan were transferred by authorities of the INM to the two new open-door shelters, where they will remain while they continue the refugee application processes.

The beneficiaries of this initiative are: families, elderly people, pregnant women, children, adolescents and the disabled.

While news broke that migrants had rejected Mexico’s offer, the migrant caravan are individuals free to choose the country they wish to apply for legal status and the organizers of the caravan do not speak for the group. Thousands have applied for legal status over the last week and Mexico continues to process requests at its southern border with Guatemala.
