The irregular passage of migrants through Panama has risen despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

In 2020, the irregular passage of 6,400 migrants was recorded up from 4,000 the previous year according to the Ombudsman's Office.

The director of the National Migration Service, Samira Gozaine, warned that the irregular flow of migrants from Colombia is further complicated because most of the arrivals do not have documents.

Deport them all? Is that what Jesus told his followers to do with strangers?

Just deport them now before they get clogged up at the CR border and cause a massive outbreak of disease. Those of us living near the border don't need a repeat of the past! Cortizo and his Commie allies are complicit in human traffiking if he doesn't deport them all!
