By BBN Staff: A Mexican shelter known as “The 72” has hosted almost 1,500 migrants, the Associated Press reports.
In the year 2020, the shelter hosted 3,000 people for the entire year.
Meanwhile, in the first weeks of 2021, migrants seem to be moving again.
The Priest who runs the shelter in Tenosique, Mexico said that there is a tremendous flow of migrants.
“We have a tremendous flow and there isn’t capacity. The situation could get out of control. We need a dialogue with all of the authorities before this becomes chaos,” the priest said.
There are also concerns since the movement of these Central Americans continues during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The NGO, Doctors without Borders in Mexico said that there is less capacity than before to meet their needs due to COVID-19.
In addition, some shelters remain closed and applications for visas and asylum are delayed.
Some migrants believe that they might receive a friendlier welcome from the new Biden administration.
