Over 500,000 thousand Central American migrants entered Mexico illegally during the first six months of 2019, revealing the extent of the immigration crisis.
Mexico Interior Secretary Olga Sanchez Cordero revealed that more than half a million Central American migrants have entered her country between January and June of this year, according to the Center for Immigration Studies. The vast majority of the migrants come from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, a region in Central America known as the Northern Triangle.
The migration numbers for the first half of 2019 dwarf those for the entire years of 2017 and 2018. The Mexican government reported a total of 138,612 Central Americans entering the country illegally in 2018. There were only 93,486 illegal migrants from that region during 2017.
Most of the Central Americans passing though Mexico are attempting to reach the United States, where many of them then lodge an asylum claim. The White House is working with these Northern Triangle countries to try and reduce the flow of migrants emanating from their borders.
