MEXICO CITY: Mexicos National Human Rights Commission said Friday that some migrants are being held at some government facilities without proper sanitary measures, with migrants with COVID-19 mixed in with some without symptoms.
The governmental commission said one facility in southern Chiapas state lacked enough face masks and hand gel, and said social distancing measures are not being followed.
It said some Central Americans are being held at another improvised facility that doesnt have electrical service or running water.
Mexicos National Immigration Institute did not immediately respond to the allegations.
Central American migrants are frequently detained in Mexico when they try to reach the U.S. border.
