The U.S. and Mexican governments said Tuesday that the U.S. will continue to accept immigrants from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela under a humanitarian program after May 11 when the COVID-19 health policy, known as Title 42, expires.
The two countries said in a joint statement that Mexico would continue to accept its share of migrants returning to the country for humanitarian reasons.
The announcement comes as the US prepares for the end of the Title 42 policy.
The US has said it plans to increase deportations after May 11.
Mexico has accepted immigrants deported from the United States under a policy that allows the United States to quickly deport immigrants including Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans and Venezuelans who enter the United States illegally.
A U.S. official said last week that the U.S. intends to continue deporting immigrants from those four nations back to Mexico after the program’s end date.
Tuesday’s announcement indicates that the humanitarian US parole program, which provides legal immigration pathways for Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans and Venezuelans, will continue after May 11.
