Mexico: Venezuelan people stranded in Mexico
Created: 03/11/2022 +


On 12 October, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced joint actions with Mexico to create a more orderly and safe immigration system for Venezuelans. This system included a new programme allowing up to 24,000 Venezuelans to enter US territory by air as long as they have a supporter in the US to provide them financial and other types of support. The programme is not open to Venezuelans who have been “ordered removed” from the US in the previous five years or have irregularly entered Mexico or Panama after 12 October.
