A growing number of Ukrainians and Russian dissidents are travelling to Mexico, driving across the border into the United States to seek asylum, a trend that could accelerate as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine forces more people to flee their homes.
According to figures from the US Customs and Border Protection, arrivals of Ukrainians at the Mexican-US border have increased in recent months after a drastic drop in 2020 and 2021 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
