Last August 9, the Costa Rican authorities deported the first irregular Haitian of this migratory big wave.

Near 3.000 migrants are stuck in Costa Rica in their way to The United States, due to the closing of the border with Nicaragua for the irregular migrants since last November.

Most of these migrants, which does not carry documentation, identifies themselves as Africans, but the Costa Rican authorities have said that many of them are Haitian that hide their nationality to avoid deportation processes.

The Government of Costa Rica have opened centers of attention for the migrants in Paso Canoas and Buenos Aires, near the border with Panama, where these persons enter to the country, as well as in Peñas Blancas, border with Nicaragua.
