Migrant Issues in Mexico

Migrants in Mexico come from diverse backgrounds and have different reasons for migrating, including economic opportunities, escaping violence, and reuniting with family in the United States. Mexico serves as a transit route for migrants from Central America, South America, the Caribbean, and other regions. The journey through Mexico is challenging and risky, with migrants facing dangers, exploitation, and detention. Mexico’s approach to migration has varied, from cooperating with the US on border security to adopting more humanitarian approaches. It’s important to stay updated on current information regarding migrants in Mexico and those using it as a route to the United States.
