INM conducts surveillance operation in Chetumal ADO

Chetumal, Q.R. — As part of the agreement made by Mexico with United States to control Central American immigrants, the National Institute of Migration has been conducting checks in the Chetumal ADO.

INM officers were at the station Friday after receiving a report of undocumented persons attempting to travel from the state’s capital city. It was around noon when several officers arrived and began their operation at the bus station, checking transport units as well as station facilities.

INM strengthened their surveillance and supervision strategies after July 11 when Federal Police arrested six Cuban nationals who were transported on a bus from San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, to Cancun.

The increased surveillance falls within the framework of the actions implemented by the federal government to strengthen immigration surveillance measures along the southern border. INM officers are anticipated to also begin highway spot checks, inspecting vehicles for undocumented travelers in the country.
