Nearly 50,000 Haitian immigrants have been stranded in Brazil, and in the coming months will pass through Mexico in order to reach the United States.
President of Mexico’s National Commission of Human Rights (CNDH) Luis Raul Gonzalez said that the flow of Haitian immigrants to Mexico has become an issue over recent months as the increase has accelerated.
“The flow of people has increased rapidly in transit to the United States,” Gonzalez said at a news conference Monday.
The transit is from Brazil into Mexico into the U.S., and it’s getting so out of hand that Mexicans are starting to ask for a wall on the country’s southern border.
