Tens of thousands of Haitians attempting to cross the United States Southern Border has created a crisis, but it may only just be the tip of the iceberg. Panama’s Foreign Minister Erika Mouynes said in an interview with Axios that over 85,000 Haitians have crossed through Panama in 2021 and “they all are heading toward the U.S.”
“We’ve engaged with every single authority that we can think of, that we can come across, to say, ‘Please, let’s pay attention to this,” said Mouynes who is frustrated “that the Biden administration seemed caught off guard by the Haitian migrant crisis because ‘we sounded the alarm when we should have” reports Axios.
Mouynes had meetings on Monday and Tuesday in Washington with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and members of Congress. In her meetings, she called on the U.S. to help enforce a plan in the region, saying, ultimately, “let’s recognize that they all are heading toward the U.S.”
Axios reports “roughly 20,000 to 25,000 Haitians have already made the trek to the U.S.-Mexico border, with most being allowed to enter the United States.” This means, “beyond those already admitted or deported ack to Haiti, another 60,000 are most likely still on their way north, the minister said.”
Pro-migration messaging from the U.S. “and some South American nations has played a role in the uptick” writes Axios. “Panama is expecting more migrants to cross through the dangerous jungles of the Darién Gap this month than in all of 2019 — nearly 27,000, according to Panamanian government estimates provided to Axios.”
