Yucatán authorities seize 151 immigrants traveling in two buses

Agents from the Ministry of Public Security (SSP) detained 151 illegal immigrants at the surveillance checkpoint located at kilometer 217 of the toll road, on the borders of Yucatán and Quintana Roo.

The undocumented immigrants, apparently Central Americans, were traveling in two buses, one blue and the other gray and black, which they boarded somewhere in Campeche.

One of the vehicles belonged to the “Turiscam” Mexcian commercial transportation line and the illegal aliens were heading to Cancun, where “Polleros” (human traffickers) would contact them to take them to the border with the United States.

The version arose that in Cancun they would board a boat that would take them to Florida.

However, when passing through the checkpoint, the agents noticed that people were standing on the buses, which is not normal.

When carrying out an inspection, it was detected that these people were migrants of different nationalities, especially from Central America, so they took them down and asked for their identifications.

Support was immediately requested and agents from the National Migration Institute (INM) and the National Guard, among other authorities, arrived at the scene and then transferred them to the Comprehensive Public Security Center of Valladolid.

Among the migrants, there are people over 50 years old, as well as young adults, women, and some minors.

The Yucatan state police did not immediately report the arrest.

However, it was found out that the bus drivers were placed at the disposal of the State Attorney General’s Office for the release of responsibilities.

The migrants were taken to the Public Security Center, where police personnel took note of their personal information. Then they put them back on the buses, apparently to take them to Mérida so that the legal process to be deported can be carried out by the INM immigration authorities.
