Uncertainty at the border before plan for Venezuelans
The first Venezuelan migrants returned as part of the plan began to arrive immediately after the announcement through five points on the border
TIJUANA, Mexico.- “We cannot attend to anyone, there is no room for anyone else.” José María García Lara answered like this, standing between rows of tents in what looks like a small warehouse, to the director of another shelter for migrants in Tijuana, on the western end of the border between Mexico and the United States. His interlocutor was looking for space for a group, some of them Venezuelans, who had just been expelled and for whom she had no space.
The Joe Biden administration announced Wednesday that it will accept up to 24,000 Venezuelan migrants who pre-register for the program, have a sponsor in the country and arrive by air. But it will return those who cross the border illegally from Mexico, a figure that exceeded 33,000 people in September alone.
The first Venezuelan migrants returned as part of this plan began to arrive immediately after the announcement through five border points -Tijuana, Nogales, Ciudad Juárez, Piedras Negras and Matamoros-, as confirmed by the International Organization for Migration (IOM). , the United Nations migration agency.
On the eastern edge, the Casa del Migrante in the violent city of Matamoros received about 120 Venezuelans on its first day, said Father Francisco Gallardo, director of the shelter. The new arrivals joined the hundreds of Central Americans who were already housed there.
