US-Mexico border is world's deadliest land route, UN says

  • In 2022, at least 1,457 displaced persons have died or disappeared in the Americas, with over half of the cases occurring at the US-Mexico border. This makes it the world's deadliest land migration route.
  • The lack of data from official sources makes it difficult to document deaths and disappearances of migrants, especially in remote areas. Marcelo Pisani, the IOM Regional Director for South America, highlights the alarming reality of knowing so little about migrants who disappear in the Americas. The impacts on the families left behind are profound.
  • The increase in deaths on migration routes in the Caribbean is a concerning trend, with most victims being from the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Cuba. The Darien Gap, a jungle border crossing between Panama and Colombia, saw 141 documented migrant deaths last year. The need for decisive action to create safe, regular migration pathways is emphasized.
