Get updates on Amnesty's work to protect human rights in the Americas.
Every year, thousands of men, women and children pass through Mexico without legal permit; they are 'irregular' migrants. During their travel through Mexico, these people face great risk of abuse such as extortion, beatings, killings and sexual violence. Approximately 22,000 migrants may be victims of kidnapping every year in Mexico. However, up to now there are no official figures about these abuses and attacks against migrants crossing Mexico.
