- In Mexico, the number of asylum applications rose in recent years from 2,137 in 2014 to 70,302 in 2019.
Due to the increase in people who have applied for asylum in Mexico, the Labor Minister and social security (STPS) and the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) They urged employers to hire more people with refugee status.
The aim is to triple the integration of asylum seekers and refugees into the labor market of the Aztec country in states where, according to the STPS, these people do not compete with the employment of the local population.
Agencies launched an information campaign describing the benefits of hiring people in this condition and the documents employers may or may not require.
The reason for this measure lies in the fact that in Mexico the number of asylum applications has increased in recent years from 2,137 in 2014 to 70,302 in 2019.
