JUAREZ, CHIH – More than 200 federal immigration agents were deployed in Ciudad Juarez to reinforce actions to protect this population, provide care, support and assistance in the event of the risk or danger to their health due to the cold wave registered in the border region.
The operation was carried out last Friday, January 6, along the banks of the Rio Bravo, an action that was headed by the commissioner of the National Migration Institute (INM), Francisco Garduño Yáñez.
INM personnel invited and accompanied people in the context of mobility to shelters to provide them with accommodation, blankets and hot drinks as part of the humanitarian aid to cope with the low temperatures.
In this regard, Commissioner Garduño Yáñez assured that “Mexico’s migration policy continues to be humanism, respect for human rights and humanitarian protection”.
Likewise, last Saturday, January 7, the INM commissioner met with authorities from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Border Patrol in El Paso, Texas.
Garduño stated before the Border Patrol authorities that the INM will maintain communication, collaboration and coordination of efforts, always complying with the precepts of Mexican legislation and international standards.
He specified the importance of guaranteeing safe, orderly and regular migration with a humanitarian vision and the protection of the rights of people in the context of mobility, regardless of their nationality, social, political or economic status.
He considered that, given the vulnerability of those who arrive and concentrate on the border of both nations, aggravated by the climate factor, it is imperative to redouble actions on both sides of the Rio Bravo to reaffirm governance and migratory governance.
The meeting took place within the framework of the X North American Leaders Summit to be held from January 9 to 11 in Mexico City, where the leaders of Mexico, the United States and Canada will address, among other issues, the impact of migration in this region.
