More than one hundred members of the caravan of migrants have gone to the offices of the National Institute of Migration to request the legal letter of temporary residence for humanitarian aid in Mexico.
By requesting residence these people seek to be able to work in Mexicali and receive benefits such as social security.
At the INM facilities on Monday December 3rd, several dozens of migrants from Honduras and El Salvador arrived to make the request.
Although only 5 were cited, several arrived from 8:00 am and after 3 or 4 hours, they were still waiting to be served, but the amount of applicants exceeded the staff.
The only requirement they were asked for is the identification card issued by their country of origin, similar to the INE credential issued in Mexico.
The delivery of the document is not immediate and may take from 5 to 10 days on average. There were also some Haitians requesting their temporary residence letters.
