New wave of migration to the U.S. leaves thousands of Ecuadorians deported
Almost 100 thousand Ecuadorians were detained, expelled or deported from the United States this year according to data from migrant organizations. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent a mission to the border area between Mexico and the United States to learn about the migration problem, which held meetings with U.S. authorities and received testimonies.
7 out of 10 Ecuadorians who have passed through Mexico have been detained
More than 62,000 Ecuadorians have been detained by the US Border Patrol in 2021. This represents an increase in migrant smuggling, whose networks include tourism agencies in Ecuador and Mexico and migration agents, according to a Mexican source. In Ecuador, experts believe that the visa to Mexico will not stop migration as long as economic and social conditions do not improve in the country.
Nearly 2,000 unaccompanied Ecuadorian minors reached the U.S. border in the last eight months
In recent months there has been an accelerated increase in the number of Ecuadorian minors traveling without their parents to the U.S.-Mexico border. The migration of unaccompanied Ecuadorian minors is not new and has revealed the risks and violence to which they are subjected along the way. Last June 21, an Ecuadorian teenager died while trying to cross the border through the desert in the state of Texas. Last March, the US registered 19,000 unaccompanied minors from 20 countries in a single month, a record.
