Newcomers will arrive after the earthquakes, but not “massively” as everybody expects.
MERIDA — It is unlikely that Mérida will receive a wave of people from the center of the country in the wake of the devastating earthquakes a few days ago, says engineer Aref Karam Espósitos, municipal director of Urban Development.
“Of course we expect the arrival of some families who will leave Mexico City, but the reality is that they will migrate in big enough numbers to affect population dynamics”, it will definitely not be a massive exodus, as some say,” Karam Espósitos said.
The municipal official makes it clear that there is a normal migration flow every day. “There is a continuous entrance of people who come to live in the State and people who change their residence to other places.”
“Anyway, in case of a possible “immigration avalanche”, the city is ready to receive these people. Mérida is growing with a more vigorous dynamic than usual and it is well prepared to welcome newcomers without major problems,” continued the official
“We are ready for a migratory movement, and far from affecting our quality of life, it could be a advantage to modernize our state capital. Our customs and traditions, that distinguish us from the rest of Mexico, will remain without distortion in spite of any external influence” he concluded.
