a month, Mexico agrees to accommodate four thousand Venezuelans who moved to the United States, But he was rejected because of Title 42, which allows US authorities to immediately deport undocumented immigrants coming through its land borders.
Ministry of External Relations (SRE) released the report titled United States Unilateral Measures Concerning the Implementation of Section 265 of Title 42, where he said that the idea that Mexico would receive 30,000 Venezuelans per month is false.
A Foreign Ministry document sent to the Mexican Senate specified that from October 2022 to January 25, 2023, Mexico has received a total of 16,268 Venezuelan migrants who were deported by the United States due to a sanitary measure known as Title 42. Was rejected, that is, about four thousand Venezuelan citizens on average every month.
The figure will go down in the coming months and Mexico will receive only 8.9 percent (2,700) of the 30,000 migrants rejected by the United States, according to a trend seen in the first 25 days of January 2023.
The State Department confirms that the figures will go down, as the United States government has increased the number of Venezuelans admitted to their country. There are approximately 26,000 people from Venezuela who were allowed to travel by air to the United States; Whereas at present 15 thousand are in the said country systematically, safely and regularly.
Foreign Relations indicated that the United States would expand the humanitarian permit program to include Venezuelans, given the increase in emigration of Venezuelans between July and October 2022. This access route allows Venezuelan migrants to reach their destination in the US directly without having to transit irregularly through the jungles of Darien, Central America and Mexico.
“In this way, it significantly reduces the risk of traveling irregularly for thousands of kilometers and also reduces contact with criminal networks that profit and profit from undocumented migration,” he says. Are.
The Mexican government recognized that having a regular mechanism to enter the United States had a positive effect in reducing irregular flows into the border area.
And it is that in October 2022, the United States reported 21,179 encounters with Venezuela on the border with Mexico, with these numbers decreasing to 7,656 and 6,757 in the months of November and December 2022.
“As of January 22, 2023, 5,517 encounters have been reported, representing a decrease of 74 percent,” the Mexican Foreign Ministry said.
The US government’s unilateral measures also mean an unprecedented route of systematic entry into the labor market, which translates into a growing number of people who no longer face the risk of crossing illegally.
