Nearly 1,000 Ukrainians who fled to Mexico after Russia’s violent invasion of their country and who have been waiting in Tijuana to enter the United States were moved to a sports center converted into a makeshift shelter on Monday, April 4, Mexican government sources said.

The Ukrainians, about 30 percent of whom are children, made their way to Tijuana over the weekend after flying into Cancun and Mexico City from Europe, Tijuana officials said.
Since Russia first invaded Ukraine in March, an estimated 2,500 Ukrainians have come to Mexico with the hopes of later being granted asylum in the United States.

Last month, President Joe Biden said that the United States will accept up to 100,000 Ukrainians as migrants this year.
