QCOSTARICA – Nicaragua has sent reinforcements at Las Tablillas border with Costa Rica, ahead of the possible arrival of African and Cuban migrants who entered Costa Rica by way of Panama this past week.

Since Saturday, more than 100 additional police officers, including riot police and military personnel have been posted at Las Tablillas, in the area of Los Chiles, in Costa Rica’s northern zone, reports La Nacion.

According to sources in the area, the fear is that the migrants, under the darkness of night may move north intending to enter Nicaragua on their way to the United States.

In fact, Costa Rica police say they have so far stopped four undocumented Africans. They were transferred to the immigration headquarters in San Jose.

The La Nacion says it observed over the weekend authorities in Nicaragua prevent Nicaraguans who usually use this border crossing, to enter Costa Rica.

According locals, this is the first time it happens. Among the turned back, was a mother with a child in her arms, covered with a blanket, due to the strong sun.

Costa Rica is also patrolling the border.
