New head for National Institute of Migration appointed for state

Cancun, Q.R. — A new delegate for the National Institute of Migration has been appointed for the state of Quintana Roo.

Harley Sosa Guillén will take over the position of delegate for the National Institute of Migration (INM) replacing Mauricio Saad Viveros.

Sosa Guillén is the former president of the Human Rights Commission of the state of Quintana Roo and has been recognized as one of the main promoters of respect for the guarantee of individual rights of migrants.

INM staff pointed out that their work as promoters of respect for individuals wanting to live in the country was key to designating him the new position.

Sosa Guillén replaces Mauricio Saad Viveros who served as INM delegate since 2016. During his time in the federal delegation, several complaints were filed for recurrent abuses against foreigners.

The appointment for Sosa Guillén comes nearly two months after leaving his presidency of the Human Rights Commission of Quintana Roo, a position he held since March 2014.
