In recent days, this city has perceived the presence of families of color from the Republic of Congo, and aimed to give continuity to their trip to the cities of Tijuana and Mexicali trip across the United States, so some of them have seen the opportunity to enter the neighboring country (US) via the Port of San Luis Frontier, because here is less people of the same origin seeking asylum and the wait is less.

TRIBUNE OF SAN LUIS could verify the humanitarian aid that is offered to these people, because just yesterday at the migrant home "Divine Providence", the were given assistance and accommodation fourteen people of Congolese origin, who a day later they resumed their journey to cross the border.

Manuel de Jesus Cordova Bravo, president of the board of the institution, explained that indeed these individuals, men, women and children from Haiti and the Republic of Congo, have come to this city for two reasons.

He explained that one of them is because they have exhausted their resources to continue their trip to Baja California and the other, because they have seen the opportunity to cross into the United States through the Border Port of San Luis, requested political asylum, because here it is less people of the same origin and faster entry.

Cordova Bravo denied that there is a "humanitarian crisis" because the house the migrant has sufficient capacity so far to provide assistance and accommodation to these migrants.

Meanwhile, according consulted unofficial sources, details that are already more than a hundred individuals who have crossed the border, all from the Republic of Congo, which have been attended by the Custom Border Protection's Border at the Port San Luis and funneled later to the appropriate bodies, "where each case is reviewed in particular to determine the possibility of granting political asylum or refuge."
