The Mexican president recalled that action was being taken against human trafficking in that country.
Mexico’s president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, lamented the incident a week ago in the state of Puebla, in which eight migrants died, including three from Ecuador, two from Cuba and another from Venezuela, and nine others were injured. .
“Last week, in Puebla, through Tehucan, in a very unfortunate migrant accident, 8 foreign migrants lost their lives. So, we are working on it, we have made progress and we are going to continue to serve them so that their human rights are protected,” the Mexican president said.
On Tuesday, the country’s authorities confirmed the death of the migrants who were traveling in an accident on the Azumbilla-Canada Morelos highway section in the south of Puebla state.
The accident occurred when a truck carrying migrants overturned on its way to the US border. However, this fact gained prominence after the statement of Ecuador’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Human Mobility this Tuesday, which reported the investigation of the Mexican parties.
So far, nine migrants are known to still be in critical condition after surviving the crash.
López Obrador promised a plan to protect Mexican migrants at his conference on Wednesday, for which he met with the governors of Mexico’s southeastern and northern borders.
“We work against people smugglers and carriers who provide services in inhuman danger conditions and there are many accidents,” he recalled.
