INM assists 407 migrants abandoned in three buses in Veracruz

On Thursday, federal and state security forces located three tourist buses on the Minatitlán-Acayucan highway in Veracruz, where 407 foreign individuals were identified as abandoned and unable to prove their legal stay in Mexican territory, as reported by Mexico’s National Institute of Migration.

INM personnel, including members of the Beta Group, participated in the humanitarian rescue, assisting a pregnant woman from Honduras, along with her minor daughter, a man, and another person from Ecuador, who were transported to the General Hospital of Cosoleacaque.

The identified individuals come from seven countries in the Caribbean, Central, and South America. Among them, 91 were traveling in family units (30 women, 15 men, and 46 minors under 18), while 52 minors were found unaccompanied by an adult.

Of the 264 adults traveling alone, 12 are from Cuba, 4 from the Dominican Republic, 27 from Ecuador, 187 from Guatemala, 7 from Honduras, 21 from El Salvador, and 6 from Nicaragua. This group was taken to the Acayucan immigration station.
