Its location derived from the intelligence work in which elements of the INM and the National Guard (GN), as well as the state police, intervened.

Likewise, in this action, 19 people of Mexican nationality and 13 vehicles in which they were traveling were made available, for the probable crime of human trafficking, for the corresponding purposes before the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR).

The INM thus endorses its commitment to safe, orderly, and regular migration, with full respect and safeguarding the rights of people in the context of mobility in Mexico.
