Mérida, Yuc. June 25.- As part of the reinforcement to prevent the flow of Central Americans passing through Mexico bound for the United States and the agreements for that country not to impose tariffs on domestic products, seven undocumented Hondurans were arrested over the weekend, as they were just about to board a plane to Monterrey, state capital of Nuevo León.
As we reported, the United States Government threatened Mexico with imposing tariffs on domestic products that were imported by that country, if strategies to stop the flow of Central American migrants were not put in operation.
Besides, the Mexican Foreign Ministry asked the bus companies to request INE credentials from passengers, in order to detect migrants who could be using this type of transport to reach the northern border.
Therefore, within the framework of the National Strategy to address the migratory flow, the prevention and combat of the crimes of illegal trafficking of people, the National Institute of Migration (INM) installed a review post at the International Airport of Mérida, with support of the Federal Police.
This measure allowed the detection and securing of seven people of Honduran nationality: three men, two women and two minors, when they were about to board an airplane bound for Monterrey – Nuevo León, without regulatory documentation to travel in the country. The five adults presented false INE credentials, declaring they were Mexican.
These seven foreigners were taken to the INM detention facility in Mérida, Yuc., where the corresponding legal process will be carried out to define their migratory situation.
Unofficial versions say one of these Central Americans could be actually a “pollero” (human trafficker).
