State, Mexican and local authorities met Monday in order to address the humanitarian crisis caused by the massive arrival of immigrants.

In a prepared statement, the state of Baja California said the administration has led the access to services demanded by immigrants with a humanitarian, gender, inclusive, equalitarian, perspective.

The state admitted the complexity of the situation given the immigration policies set by the US government.

The state, along with its city and federal counterparts, as well as international and local nonprofits had addressed the issue.

State Secretary of Government Catalino Zavala said the meeting sought to properly address the situation both in the short- and long-term.

The meeting included Mexicali Mayor Norma Bustamante and Mexican delegate in Mexicali Jaime Rojo.

Since days ago local immigrant shelters had reported full capacity.
