Migrant rights group urges Mexico to end US pacts after ‘abuses’

A TEXAS-based civil society group called yesterday for Mexico to end all immigration agreements with the United States after documenting hundreds of cases of abuse, which it said occurred amid a “militarisation” of Mexican policy toward migrants.

The Border Network for Human Rights (BNHR), based in El Paso, Texas, documented 202 cases of alleged abuse perpetrated against 56 migrants since 2022, according to its annual report released yesterday.
