Every year, thousands of people travel through Mexico without legal permission as irregular migrants. The lack of access to protection and justice makes migrants easy targets for criminal gangs and corrupt public officials. Migrants in Mexico are facing a major human rights crisis fuelled by widespread impunity for those responsible for abuses. In this report Amnesty International calls on the federal authorities to lead, develop and implement an action plan to respect, protect and fulfil the rights of irregular migrants in Mexico.
