Tijuana. -Migrants from the state of Senegal, Haiti and Cuba cross by irregular steps through the parts of Algodones, Miguel Aleman and San Luis Rio Colorado. On their way to the border board, it can be seen that meters away from the United States agents they throw their documents such as passports, humanitarian visas granted by the National Immigration Institute of Mexico (INAMI) or immigration forms before surrendering to the authorities. North Americans.
Three groups were detected arriving in Algodones, a group of them identified as Cubans of around 8 migrants, arriving desperately running, it was possible to have an immediate dialogue with one of them.
“We can’t believe it, we’ve already arrived, we struggled a lot, there is a lot of corruption in Mexico, but we’ve already arrived, I send a lot of health and luck to my Cuban compatriots.”
In the second group of about 6 migrants from Africa, two infants and a pregnant woman were seen, the leader of the family, walking near the lake, told us.
