The IOM also warned that refugees and migrants who moved out of necessity were particularly affected by these restrictions and millions have found themselves stranded far from their residence and at risk.

At the same time, Eritreans who came to Ethiopia fleeing violence in their country were soon caught up in the fighting in Tigray: in March, satellite images showed that camps housing thousands of these refugees had been completely razed to the ground and all humanitarian aid facilities looted and vandalized. UN aid workers were unable to access the refugees until August, when they delivered urgently needed relief supplies.

The head of the migration agency, António Vitorino, warned in November that conflict, extreme poverty and weather-related emergencies had brought the country to the brink of collapse.

In October, UNHCR called on the Libyan government to immediately address the plight of asylum seekers and refugees in a humane manner, in line with international human rights law.

Countries with the highest migration 2022

Among the changes that the region experienced during 2020 were displacements as a result of disasters associated with natural events.  The United States experienced historic displacement related to the impact of rains and floods; and both the United States and Canada experienced internal displacement as a result of the effects of wildfires.  More than 1.7 million new displacements due to disasters were recorded between the two countries in 2020 (Internal Displacement Monitoring Center (IDMC), 2021).

In relation to data production, the region has a strong capacity in the collection, production and dissemination of migration information.  The main institutions in charge of data recording correspond to governmental authorities and institutions in charge of the control and supervision of migratory flows in their borders and territories, in addition to important Statistics and Census Institutes dedicated to the study and characterization of the population in the territory. It should also be noted that the region has a wide variety of research and academic institutions that publish relevant analyses and studies on current migration dynamics (Migration Policy Institute (MPI), 2020).

Migrants in the united states 2022

Migrants seeking asylum, mostly from Venezuela and Cuba, wait to be transported by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents after crossing the Rio Grande River into the U.S. from Mexico in Eagle Pass, Texas, U.S., July 14, 2022.

More than 125,000 Cubans arrived in South Florida between April and October 1980, after Fidel Castro’s government opened the port of Mariel, about 25 miles from Havana, to anyone who wanted to leave the island, in a previously unprecedented migration movement.

The existence of transnational networks dedicated to human trafficking is the impossible fact to ignore in the middle of the migratory crisis in Colchane. So far no one has been able to dismantle these networks, even the Chilean authorities admit that they do not know much about them. They blame the migrants for not reporting them, and those who migrate accuse the coyotes of swindling and stealing from them. CIPER reconstructed the route taken by the thousands of Venezuelan migrants who have been crowding the country’s northern border since the end of 2020. This is a story of iron wills and journeys without papers.

Originally from San Cristóbal, a city located in the border state of Táchira, Junior arrived on Sunday, February 7, at the migrant camp set up in Plaza Brasil, after serving seven days of quarantine in one of the shelters specially set up in the area to receive immigrants and thus decongest the migratory crisis at the point of entry: Colchane (see report in CIPER).

The crossroads that Junior was at in Pisiga is the same one faced by thousands of migrants who have arrived in Chile these days through unauthorized passes, or “trochas” as they call them. CIPER spoke with Venezuelan citizens who have arrived in Colchane and Iquique, and reconstructed the route they use to travel through South America with final destination Santiago.
