Migrants from Haiti line up to regularise their migratory situation outside of the Mexican Commission for Aid to Refugees (COMAR), as thousands of Haitians were detained, deported or expelled from a camp on Mexico’s frontier with Texas last week and others traveled west to the border city of Tijuana while aiming to avoid a crackdown on a recent spike in migrant traffic, in Tijuana, Mexico September 29, 2021.

Following the migration crisis that played out at the U.S. border last month, where some 15,000 Haitian migrants crossed the Rio Grande into Texas, Mexico is still seeing the effects.

Thousands returned to Mexico, joining others who remained all along.
