    Meanwhile, in Monclova, state of Monterrey, on March 15, "102 foreigners traveling in an irregular migratory situation were detected by security corporations in two different operations and made available to the National Migration Institute (INM)," the newspaper The Herald of Saltillo said.

    According to the INM publication, the rescue of 64 migrants from Venezuela, Cuba, Colombia and Guatemala was confirmed, on highway 53—Monclova-Monterrey—, in Carlos Salinas, municipality of Castaños, who were traveling in two van-type vehicles.

    “This is the third time that migrants in transit have been detected in a week and a half, the first two cases in trailer boxes where they were traveling overcrowded and with insufficient oxygen, which led to hospitalization of some and a balance of two people deceased”.

    Just on March 13, another 82 Cuban migrants were rescued from a trailer; 42 men, 28 women and 12 minors, who showed signs of dehydration, reported the Monclova newspaper La Prensa. Another note from the newspaper itself indicates that a week earlier, on March 5, another group of more than 200 migrants was abandoned, locked in the box of a trailer in Monclova, when they were heading to the United States.

    At the beginning of the year, Ernesto Soberón, director of Consular Affairs and Cuban Residents Abroad of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said, "the non-compliance by the United States government with the migratory agreements between the two countries, its actions to hinder direct travel and the reinforcement of the economic blockade encourages illegal migration”.
