Campaign Section Structure
 

Thousands of men, women and children, participating in a mass exodus from extreme violence and insecurity in Honduras and other countries, have sought entry to Mexico.

Amnesty International has documented how people who arrive at Mexico’s borders are often given the wrong information by authorities about their right to seek asylum in the country. Mexican authorities have a troubling record of turning back thousands of people to life threatening situations, in violation of international obligations.  

Mexican authorities must protect people who are fleeing from danger and guarantee the right of every person to claim asylum, whether they are alone, in a group or part of a caravan.

Call on Mexico not to turn away people whose lives are at risk, and to properly protect those seeking asylum.
