Baja & Border News Translations: Guatemalans Indicate Delays with Immigration in Chiapas

Guatemalans Indicate Delays with Immigration in Chiapas (Diario del Sur, 1/13/15 by Cesar Solis)

Tapachula, Chiapas - Migrants traveling in Tapachula and municipalities in the region reveal martyrdom living every time they go to the offices of Migratory Regularization of the National Migration Institute (INM), located in the south of the city. They point out that many times documents allowing them to legally remain on a temporary or permanent basis are late. In addition, high costs cause many to prefer to continue being "illegal" in Chiapas territory.

Outside the offices of Immigration Regulation located next to the Tapachula Municipal Public Security Secretariat, Edwin "n", originating from Guatemala stated the amounts you have to pay for these processes has increased considerably, which makes it so that not all people who come can pay and stay legally.

"I had 4,690 pesos ($371 US) to cover the cost of my temporary residence and thereby continue to work here without any problems, but the truth is we are getting abused and not gaining much. One can only do so much, but you have countrymen that do not work together and decide to be irregular", he emphasized.

He assured that coupled with high prices, processing remains increasingly slow, waiting times are stretched increasingly and the response the INM workers give is that it does not depend on them, since the documentation has to be sent to the Mexico City.

"The current immigration policy of Mexico, far from benefiting, does not help at all those who want to be here legally with all requirements; sadly one has to adapt to the laws, but not all have the money and it affects us greatly; hopefully this new President do something about," he said.

In the workplace, also collected was testimony from another affected Chapín named Federico Hernández, who lamented that in these offices only minimal work is delivered daily and the personnel are not cordial or give timely attention to people, since only one INM agent attends to them while the rest do other things except any work.

"What is the money being spent for? I have already spent too much to come here and have lost many days, because of the formality of an FM3; I have spent more than two months going in circles. These procedures are not cheap or fast. I had to pay 4,130 pesos ($327 US) for the processing that was very expensive, but as I have the credential of local visitor, I discounted it a bit", he added.

On the outskirts of this area, on a daily basis many migrants or foreigners leave annoyed by the bad care they receive and blame it on the lack of a State delegate of the National Institute of Migration in Chiapas, as well as the appointment of a Commissioner of the same institution responsible to the Ministry of the Interior. http://www.oem.com.mx/lavozdelafrontera/notas/n2840899.htm
