MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission says a migrant detention center in the capital suffers from bedbugs, bad food and overcrowding.
The governmental commission on Friday said the issues were pointed out more than a year ago and still haven’t been resolved. It also said the Las Agujas center needed fumigation and better training for employees.
Mexico recently announced a $3 million plan to remodel and improve detention centers in southern Mexico.
But the commission said the Mexico City facility should get more attention.
A U.S. policy implemented on Tuesday denies asylum to anyone who shows up on the border after traveling through another country, something Central American migrants normally do.
