They arrest Cuban migrants crammed into a truck in Mexico

Seven Cuban citizens were detained on Thursday by Mexican immigration authorities in the southeastern state of Veracruz, when they were traveling with other migrants crammed into a truck.

According to the National Migration Institute (INM), the group was made up of a total of 69 foreigners in an irregular condition: 56 Nicaraguans, six Hondurans and the seven Cubans, who were hidden aboard a tractor-trailer.

The INM detected the vehicle at kilometer 14 of the Córdoba-Veracruz federal highway, when crossing the Cuitláhuac toll booth.

According to the statement issued, the driver and an assistant were placed at the disposal of the Attorney General’s Office (FGR).

This week they were detained seven Cuban rafters who disembarked in the beach area of ​​a hotel under construction located in the tourist area of ​​Cancun, in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.

The State Secretariat of Public Security of Quintana Roo released a video showing how the migrants were intercepted while walking down the street and then mounted in two police vans.

The arrival of the group was reported and immediately the authorities began their search through the video surveillance cameras of the C5.

“As a consequence, they were located meters ahead by members of the Coordination Group for the Construction of Peace and Security, making them available to the corresponding authority,” the entity detailed on its Twitter account.

During fiscal year 2021, which ended on September 30, Mexico’s Customs and Border Protection Office detected more than 1.7 million illegal immigrants at its borders.

According to data from the Migration Policy Unit of the Ministry of the Interior of the Aztec country, from January to November of that year the authorities intercepted more than 252,000 migrants in an irregular situation, and deported more than 100,000 to their place of origin.
