Migrants on the southern Mexican border ask for deportation due to new restrictions

Groups of Venezuelan and Ecuadorian migrants, who have reached the southern border of Mexico, asked the Mexican government to deport them to their country of origin, or to the closest thing to Colombia, because they have unexpectedly come across the new restrictions on USA.

Last Wednesday, the United States announced new measures to control Venezuelan migration: a program that gives legal status for two years to those who arrive by plane but includes the immediate expulsion of those who cross the border through Mexico irregularly.

Alex Sebastián Pila, a migrant from Ecuador, who is traveling with a group of about 20 compatriots, arrived in Tapachula in the last few hours, but has run out of money, food, a place to sleep and is now imploring the help of the Mexican authorities for his deportation due to the new immigration measures adopted between Mexico and the US.

“Things have gotten complicated and I want to know if there is a possibility that they will deport us to Ecuador to return to our country, or if here in Mexico they can help us with an asylum to get my papers or they will return me to my country, because It complicated the situation a lot and the borders were closed to us,” he commented.

His compatriots said that they are a group of more than 100 Ecuadorians who want to return to their country, “but we are going to ask immigration to return us, because we are men, children, women and older adults.”

These migrants refused to walk out in a caravan because they say it is dangerous and they prioritize their health and well-being.

In less than 24 hours, two caravans of Venezuelans have left after the announcement by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which reported last Wednesday on the expulsion of Venezuelan migrants who arrive irregularly in the United States by cross the border from Mexico.

Another of the groups of migrants are the Venezuelans who asked for the support of the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, to help them return to Venezuela or Colombia, since the United States is not accepting them due to its most recent immigration policies, explained, Edgar Alexander Tapaul, a migrant from Venezuela, desperate and without encouragement, in a plaza in Tapachula.

“We are seeing what possibility there is that they send us on a flight to Colombia, which is the closest to Venezuela, because we are really in need, there is no food, water and money,” Tapaul said.

Another caravan of more than 1,000 migrants leaves for the US
This Saturday morning, the second caravan of migrants, mostly Venezuelans, set out, bringing together people from Ecuador, Colombia, Cubans and, to a lesser extent, from Central America, who reiterated that they are going to try as many times as necessary to try to enter the United States.

The migrant from Venezuela, Jesús David Pinela, who joined this second caravan and was walking on the coastal highway in Tapachula, trusts that the governments of the United States and Mexico will reach an agreement to allow them to enter legally, “without armed conflicts or anything.

“We are going to face all the risks, obstacles and possibilities, as long as we can reach our destination, which is the United States and they receive us, so we are going to keep trying as many times as they return to us, we will continue, because the goal is to reach the United States,” he commented.

The first caravan that left Tapachula after the announcement by the US Department of Homeland Security broke up yesterday, Friday, because many took buses or motorcycles to move towards the municipalities of Mapastepec and Pijijiapan.

This second caravan came out amid strong rumors spread among the migrants themselves that the Joe Biden government had granted a 90-day extension for Venezuelans to enter the United States.

However, there is no report from the Department of Homeland Security confirming the veracity of that information.
