Rodríguez, on her way out in December, said it was strange that she was being asked to take a vacation during one of the busiest periods of the immigration service, alluding that she was probably going to be replaced. “Due to some tough decisions I have taken I have few friends in the department”, Rodríguez told the press two months ago.

In the meantine Freddy Montero, the subdirector de Migración, has been overseeing the department.
