La 72 Home and Refuge for Migrant People announces a screening of Migrant

Crossing, a film that documents the lives of migrants who cross Mexico from Central

America and the work of La 72.

Ramón Marquez, executive director of La 72 and expert on migration issues in the

southern Mexico/Northern Triangle region, will present a Q&A session immediately

following the screening.

Located approximately 30km from the Guatemalan border in Tenosique, Tabasco and

next to the rail line migrants use to cross Mexico to the US, La 72 houses and serves

approximately 13,000 migrants and refugees from Central America every year.

Currently, more and more migrants are soliciting asylum in Mexico. La 72 serves a

significant number of LGBTQ persons and unaccompanied minors each year as well.

Tenosique is one of only three towns in Mexico with a permanent UNHCR presence,

and La 72 serves a strategic focal point for institutions such as Doctors Without Borders

and Asylum Access.
