60,000 more Haitian migrants heading to US border, Panama says

Panama’s government estimates another 60,000 Haitians are likely heading to the U.S.-Mexico border, Panama Foreign Minister Erika Mouynes revealed in an interview with Axios this week.

Mouynes said she is urging the United States to help enforce a plan organized with other countries in the region, noting that they must “recognize that they all are heading toward the U.S.”

Mouynes said over 85,000 migrants have passed through Panama since January, with the majority being Haitians. Between 20,000 and 25,000 Haitians have already made the journey to America’s southern border with Mexico, Axios noted, with the majority being released inside the U.S.

“When we receive them on the Panamanian side, they’re malnourished,” Mouynes said. “The children are in terrible condition, so even getting them up to a healthy state takes time.”
