A city shelter has been reset to house deported Mexican nationals after many Haitian citizens had been relocated.

Mexicali officials with the Family Development Agency said the Colonia División del Norte shelter will reopen to receive deported Mexicans.

The site was home to about 1,139 Haitian immigrants who requested asylum in the US.

These immigrants had been able to rent a home and get a job or had been accepted for asylum in the US.

The Stay in Mexico Program has been ongoing for over two years. This Migrant Protocol Program has kept asylum seekers in Mexico while their cases are processed. So far the city has opened eleven shelters to home Haitian immigrants.
