  • Central American migrants on the US-Mexico border look forward to Biden's election

    Matamoros, Nov 9 (EFE).- Migrants who for more than a year have been living in a camp set up in the city of Matamoros along the Mexican side of the Rio Bravo - known in the US as the Rio Grande - are celebrating the victory of Democrat Joe Biden in the Nov. 3 US presidential election and are now hoping for the overturning of the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) and the ability to enter the US legally.The news of President Donald Trump's defeat in the election spread quickly through the improvised camp via word of mouth and WhatsApp groups, and expectations are high that the US stance on migration will change markedly after Biden takes office on Jan. 20, 2021.

    As if dealing with the drama of the US general election wasn't challenging enough, US citizens who live in Mexico--and want to vote--have it even worse. According to Business Insider, those Americans must endure hours-long waits at the border before they reach the ballot box. On Election Day, thousands of US citizens living in Mexico crowded the international bridges to El Paso, Texas, just to cast their vote. Most waited over two hours. The international bridge between Ciudad Juarez and El Paso was also completely full. Even with COVID-related restrictions in place, the line stretched out for nearly a mile.
