The Mexican government and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) of the United Nations (UN) called for the promotion of a protocol to prevent labor trafficking of migrants, especially in the tourism sector.

Through the campaign “Ethical Recruitment for Sustainable Tourism”, which informs about hiring practices that respect the dignity and human rights of people, the institutions seek to contribute to the prevention and combat of trafficking of vulnerable groups such as migrants, women or people with disabilities.

“Although cases of labor exploitation can be found throughout the labor migration process, it is in recruitment where these situations can occur the most,” explained Dana Graber, head of mission in Mexico for the IOM, at the campaign’s launch event.

Quoting a U.S. State Department report on human trafficking, Graber said that between 2019 and 2022, two thousand 75 victims were identified in Mexico.

He also assured that Mexico is the country where most trafficking victims in the United States and Latin America come from.

Labor trafficking, although it generates economy, is one of the crimes that has a more serious impact on those who suffer it, commented the general director of administration of the Ministry of Tourism, Luis Felipe Cangas.
