Guards did not help them out, 40 migrants died in a fire in Mexico

Desperation gripped the migrants as a fire raged in the cells where they were being held. Although they walked through the locked doors in full view of the security guards, none were able to open them so they could escape the flames.

At least 40 is the death toll kept by the National Migration Institute (INM) station in Ciudad Juárez, in northern Mexico, next to the border with the United States, where migrants, mostly Venezuelans, remained.

The INM report details that there were 68 foreign men in this center, of whom 40 died and 28 were seriously injured.

The Mexican immigration authorities indicated that it is unknown how the fire started but that they are continuing the investigations to determine how the events occurred.
