Ensenada businessmen ask Mexican immigration to act against the Central American caravan members

Translated by Fulano from an article in El Vigia.net

The Ensenada business sector asked those in authority at the National Immigration Institute to address the issue of the Central American migrants in Tijuana whose presence is now causing economic damages in the state.

Jorge Cortés Ríos, president of the Business Coordination Council of Ensenada, said that the problems generated by strengthening the searches at the border crossings, due to the presence of the migrants is affecting commercial and tourist activities in the entire region.

The National Immigration Institute must promote their repatriation when it is seen they cannot achieve their objective of entering the United States, said Cortés Ríos.

They are also worried these migrant groups will end up being moved to other cities in the state, possibly Ensenada, where municipal authorities lack the capacity to attend to them.

Many tourists have stopped coming to Ensenada out of fear of an incident at the border crossing when they return.
