De migrantes, presos y Covid-19

Originally published by El Pais on 21/03/2020


With the COVID-19 pandemic currently taking place, we usually forget to talk about the situation lived by the most vulnerable population, being migrants or detained persons.People refuse to go to medical services because of fear of having their visas retained.The program “Stay in Mexico'” is aimed to leave people requesting asylum to remain in Mexico, has more than 60,000 people stopped.There is not cleaning as there should be, people cannot keep their distance as recommended, and is therefore at a greater risk of spreading the virus.  This is also happening within jails, where they have restricted visits.  There is a call for empathy and support to those people that require it the most.
