The well-known Global Pact on Migration 2018, which seeks to facilitate regulated, orderly and secure migration without human rights violations, is under way, although there are those who argue that there is still a long way to go.
The Panamanian authorities expelled 425 foreigners between January and May this year 2017 for having committed "migratory faults", most of them citizens of Colombia, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua and China. Among those deported or expelled are 131 Colombians, 87 Cubans, 36 Venezuelans, 29 Nicaraguans, 25 Chinese, 22 Ecuadorians and 22 Dominicans, this long before Executive Decree No. 269 of May 29, 2017.
After this, the Minister of Government, María Luisa Romero, said that the migration problem affects everyone and Panama doesn´t escape it since it´s a transit country.
She indicated that many migrants use the refugee alternative to solve the migration situation when the immigration regulations are hardened by high flow of human mobility and delay the procedures of those who really qualify for this condition.
Mexico's permanent ambassador to the United Nations, Juan José Gómez Camacho, co-facilitator of the Global pact, gave an example of his country of origin, Mexico, where remittances generated by people outside thier country of origin represent 15% of migrant workers in the labor force of nations, while 85% of these funds remain in the countries where they´re established.
