They have announced a social program to provide $110 a month for six months to Venezuelan migrants who are returned to their country.

Mexican Chancellor Alicia Bárcena revealed this measure on March 21, according to EFE.

“It is very important, we have just signed an agreement with Venezuela, with President Nicolás Maduro, called ‘Return to the Homeland,'” Bárcena said.

“We are sending Venezuelans back to their country because we really cannot handle these numbers,” the chancellor continued.

It was reported that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has personally instructed that every migrant returning to Venezuela receive support similar to what is offered in Mexico.

This action marks a new chapter in the cooperation efforts between Mexico and Venezuela regarding migration matters.

“So now we have an amount that we are already giving to migrants returning to Venezuela, we actually give them a card to join a program,” she pointed out.

The announcement includes details about agreements with Venezuelan companies such as Empresas Polar and Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), as well as with Mexican companies operating in the South American country, including Bimbo and Femsa.

These companies are committing to providing apprenticeships to migrants. This would provide an opportunity for jobs and social reintegration for those returning to their home country.

Good news for Venezuelan migrants

This agreement gains significance in the context of the growth of irregular migration through Mexico, which experienced a 77.2% increase in 2023, surpassing 782,000 individuals.

Venezuela emerges as the main country of origin for these migrants, with nearly 223,000 people, representing an annual increase of 131.81%.

These figures, provided by the Government’s Migration Policy Unit, underscore the magnitude of the migratory phenomenon and the need for coordinated solutions among the involved countries.

The allocation of economic resources to returned Venezuelan migrants aims not only to provide them with financial support during their reintegration process but also to lay the groundwork for their stability and well-being in Venezuela.

This week, a court of appeals temporarily suspended a controversial Texas law.

Texas’ SB 4 would allow local police to arrest and possibly deport individuals suspected of being in the country illegally.

However, Mexico has stated that it would refuse to accept anyone ordered to cross the border, according to El Financiero.

“Of course, we are against this draconian law, completely opposed, contrary to human rights,” Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador stated on Wednesday, announcing that Mexico “would not accept deportations.”
