Two INM agents fired after investigation into ‘illegal acts’

Tijuana, Baja California — The National Migration Institute (INM) has reported the dismissal of two agents from their Tijuana office. On Wednesday, the INM said they decided to separate two immigration agents who were assigned to the Representative Office in Baja California.

The agents were fired after the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) initiated an investigation for alleged illegal acts.

According to an National Migration Institute (IN) statement, “one of the employees was assigned to the El Chaparral checkpoint in the municipality of Tijuana, Baja California, while the other person performed administrative functions at the Representative Office.”

The INM said they continue to work with authorities from the Internal Control Specialty Area in the Government Branch of the Secretariat of Public Function (SFP) as the investigation proceeds.

INM officials did not specify the “illegal acts” for which the two federal agents were removed from their positions.
