Human rights of migrants and other persons in the context of human mobility in Mexico is a 2013 report by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (OAS).

From the press release:

This report addresses the situation of migrant persons and others in the context of the movement of people in Mexico, as well as the situation of those who defend migrants' human rights. This situation includes homicides, kidnappings, disappearances, acts of sexual violence, human trafficking, migrant smuggling, discrimination, and the detention of migrants without due process guarantees and judicial protection.

The extreme vulnerability to which migrants and other persons fall victim in the context of human mobility in Mexico is one of the worst human tragedies in the region today.
