By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Wednesday, El Salvador condemned the actions of personnel at the immigration detention center in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico where a fire erupted and claimed the lives of 40 migrants.
According to the Voice of America, surveillance video showed 2 of the guards running away after the fire erupted, making no effort to release the migrants held in the facility.
The Salvadoran Foreign Ministry has called for a thorough investigation of what happened and for those responsible to be brought to justice.
The facility is spearheaded by the National Migration Institute.
Those that were injured and died in the blaze included people from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Venezuela, Colombia and Ecuador.
