According to Segob data, 13 of the thirteen Yucatecan minors were traveling alone.

During 2023, Yucatán was ranked first among the Mexican states that had the lowest incidence of migrant minors deported by United States authorities.

This phenomenon decreased by 22% compared to 2022, according to information from the Ministry of the Interior (Segob). According to the data from the “Events of Mexican children and adolescents from the United States” table, Yucatán reported 17 cases of deported minors in 2023, of which 13 were traveling alone.

In 2022, 22 Yucatecan minors were deported, so the decrease last year was 22.73%.

From 2010 to 2023, the highest number of minors detained when traveling illegally through the United States was recorded. According to Segob data, 13 of the minors were traveling alone, even though Unicef ​​has warned of the risks of migration for children.

Of the 17 cases of Yucatecan minors deported in 2023, 16 were male and just one was female.

Of these, 13 teenagers were traveling alone; fluctuating between 12 and 17 years of age.

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) warns that migrants run the risk of suffering hunger and cold on their journey, of suffering from diseases, without having access to health services. In addition, they are at risk of being exploited by organized crime and of being detained and experiencing other types of violence and discrimination by the population of the places they pass through.
