Alvarado said that since June, 37 institutions work in an ‘articulated manner’ to address the issue of migration and that people should not act out of fear.

Among the actions mentioned, the reinforcement of the police at the Peñas Blancas and Tablillas border crossings; migratory operations carried out on public roads (spot checks) and ‘cuarterias’ (room houses) and the optimization of services of the Dirección de Migración y Extranjería (DGME) – the immigration service.

“We have implemented an effective migration control to deport people with unwanted profiles,” he said.
