Haitian migrants are arriving en masse in the Mexican border city of Tijuana on a daily basis, authorities say.
Around 200 Haitians are reaching Tijuana every day for a total of 6,000 per month or more.
While most of the migrants ultimately hope to reach the U.S., some reportedly seek to secure documentation enabling them to stay in Mexico as long as possible.
“Once a week, hundreds line up outside a federal facility looking for a way to remain in Tijuana legally,” according to Border Report.
Tens of thousands of Haitians have been streaming into the U.S. in recent months.
After around 30,000 mostly-Haitian illegal aliens swarmed Del Rio, Texas, in September, officials and watchdogs warned another 60,000 or so were making their way towards the U.S. southern border.
“Panama foreign minister Erika Mouynes expressed frustration to Axios that the Biden administration seemed caught off guard by the Haitian migrant crisis because ‘we sounded the alarm when we should have,'” Axios reported in late September.
“The worst may still be coming. Mouynes said there are as many as 60,000 migrants — mostly Haitian — poised to make their way north to the U.S.-Mexico border.”
Between 500 and 1,000 migrants, many of whom are Haitians heading for the U.S., are reportedly crossing the Darien Gap into Panama every day.
