By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: United Nations agencies for refugees and migration have reported that an estimated 400,000 migrants may attempt the perilous journey through the Darien Gap between Colombia and Panama this year.

According to the Associated Press, nearly 100,000 migrants may have already crossed the Darien Gap in 2023, indicating a growing number of people hoping to reach Mexico and ultimately, the United States in search of better opportunities.

The UN agencies have described the movement of people through the Americas as “unprecedented.”

In response to the situation, the U.S. has pledged to provide support to Colombia and Panama in dismantling human smuggling rings operating in the Darien Gap, including intelligence gathering efforts.
