Serious Human Rights Violations
One of the most vulnerable sectors in regular times is that of migrants who enter Mexico through the southern border and who come mainly from the so-called northern triangle.
During the last three years, there has been a significant increase in this migratory flow, which is attributable to the so-called humanitarian crisis in Central America, whose main causes are organized crime and the precarious economic situation. In this context, the Donald Trump government pressured the administration of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to implement containment mechanisms that would drastically reduce the migratory flow to the United States. In Migration Containment the face of tax threats from the US government, Mexico shifted from a policy that ordered irregular migration and guaranteed the human rights of all migrants, to one characterized by the mass detention of people fleeing their violent contexts.
