TIJUANA – Migrants protested at the United States Consulate in Tijuana, within the framework of US President Joe Biden’s visit to Mexico.
To this extent he appealed to the President of the United States.
Monica Alvarado, originally from Guatemala, told Biden, “The President of the United States of America supports us.”
Within the framework of this US President’s visit to Mexico, dozens of migrants demonstrated on Monday morning.
“I think it’s an injustice that they don’t give us the opportunity to enter the country of the United States, that we are looking for work, fighting for our lives and our families,” said Cindy, a Guatemalan migrant. Let’s continue.” told Telemundo 20.
This is the first official visit by a President of the United States to Mexico.
Though more than a protest, he said it was a cry for help for asylum seekers like Efrain, a migrant from Honduras who hopes to be reunited with his family in the humanitarian aid process.
“I ask for help, I ask him for help, let’s see if he helps us, that he gives us a chance to move forward,” said the Honduran.
Well, he confirmed that they have been sent back to shelters and haven’t been able to take advantage of “humanitarian parole” as is the case at other institutions in the city where the number of migrants in shelters has dwindled.
“For different countries except Mexico. Mexico has forgotten us here we are very close, it is sad and unfortunate to say but we are forgotten because many people came here to ask for help from the United States and so far we Haven’t seen anything,” said Jaime Roldan, originally from Michoacán, who has been here for 4 months, at a shelter run by Pastor Albert Rivera.
So, from this range, they speak out for fair immigration reform for the community that waits for the doors to open.
Pastor said, “So that President Biden knows about the chaos and the problem and that the executive orders from both his administration and other administrations have already lost the credibility of migrants to rely on executive orders.”
For next February, Pastor said he has scheduled a trip to Washington to liaise with representatives in the United States Congress and highlight firsthand the needs of migrants at the border.
