TODAY NICARAGUA – The Government of Nicaragua expressed solidarity with the relatives of the immigrants who died asphyxiated inside a trailer in Texas on June 27, and proposed to the countries of the region to strengthen Central America to face poverty as the main cause that mobilizes unsafe migration to the US.
“(It is) a humanitarian disaster. We must face these realities with a lot of solidarity and affection for the Central American and Mexican families who suffer the pain and absence of their loved ones and ask God together to work to strengthen the routes, the paths that make us advance against poverty to avoid these tragedies, our commitment to work as Mesoamerica, as Central America,” said Vice President Rosario Murillo said on Wednesday on the state-run national television Channel 4.
The National Institute of Migration (INAMI) of Mexico reported the “grim discovery” of a truck with 51 people who died asphyxiated, among whom were 27 Mexicans, 14 Hondurans, seven Guatemalans, two Salvadorans and one without specifying their identity or origin.
Two more people were later confirmed dead. 16 survived, including four minors who are hospitalized.
In total, 67 people, migrants, who were traveling to the United States in an overcrowded truck and without ventilation, were abandoned by human traffickers.
The phenomenon of unsafe migration is one of the main problems faced by Latin American countries, whose inhabitants resort to massive “caravans” of people who cross the north of Central America and Mexico to reach the United States.
