The National Institute of Migration (INM) of the Ministry of the Interior today helped 503 migrants from Central and South America who had been staying -for two weeks- in tents on the perimeter of Plaza Giordano Bruno, in the Juárez neighborhood of Mexico City.

To this end, members of the Beta Groups and Child Protection Officers (OPI) of the INM, in coordination with elements of the Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC) of Mexico City, provided support – without incident and in full adherence to the human rights – to foreigners to keep their belongings and board the buses that will take them to the State of Mexico, Hidalgo, and Morelos.

The INM thus endorses its commitment to safe, orderly, and regular migration, with respect and safeguarding the rights of those who enter and transit through national territory.
