Mexico’s Foreign Minister discusses Haitian border crisis with Blinken

Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard addressed the crisis of tens of thousands of Haitian migrants stranded at the border in a call with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - "The conversation was about this particular issue and the need for a regional response, not only to this flow that has crossed all Latin American countries," the Foreign Minister said Tuesday at the National Palace's daily press conference.

The Monday evening call comes after nearly 13,000 irregular migrants, mostly from Haiti, were detained by U.S. authorities in a makeshift camp under the international bridge linking Del Rio (Texas) to Mexico's Ciudad Acuña, in Coahuila.
