Baja California is at The Forefront in Attention to Migrants


The Government of Baja California launched a humanist policy to adequately care for all people in a context of human mobility in conjunction with the Government of Mexico, municipal governments, and civil society organizations, appointed the Secretary General of Government, Catalino Zavala Marquez.

During the eighty-eighth edition of “Wednesday Morning”, chaired by the state official representing the governor of Baja California, Marina del Pilar Avila Olmeda, presented the different actions to attend to the migrant population under the humanist perspective promoted by the state president.

Zavala Márquez stressed that, in the one-stop service windows at international checkpoints, so far this year close to 11,000 people returned from the United States have been served through Tijuana and Mexicali in conjunction with the National Institute of Migration (INM).

“Also, on instructions from our governor, we managed the delivery of more than 70 tons of various supplies that were distributed proportionally to the nearly 50 shelters in our state,” he pointed out. 

For her part, the Undersecretary for Migration Affairs, Adriana Minerva Espinoza Nolasco, detailed the importance of coordination with organizations such as UNICEF, IOM, UNHCR, Grupo ADRA, and DIME, to adequately attend to the entire migrant population.

In the same sense, she expressed that in coordination with the private sector and the Digital Agency of Baja California, the internet was installed in around 40 shelters, which has allowed them to improve their quality of life and speed up their asylum application processes to the United States.

Espinoza Nolasco explained that as a result of said public policies, a migratory crisis has not been generated and the population in State shelters has been reduced by up to 20 percent.

Present at the conference was the director of DIF Baja California, Mónica Vargas Núñez, and the head of the UNICEF Office in Baja California, Fernando Becerra, who presented to society their actions for the benefit of the migrant community.
