    Abstract Migration from the Northern Triangle countries, El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, continues to rise, with many migrating to or through Mexico to the United States. Many migrants are fleeing increased violence in the Northern Triangle. Migrant women face distinct risks and abuses, both in their home countries and while migrating for safety. This policy report reviews the situation in the Northern Triangle, the risks during migration, including detention, and provides an overview of Mexico’s migration programs and policies, as well as suggested recommendations. The report is intended to enable a discussion on the ways in which Mexico can protect migrants, specifically migrant women, as it responds to the recent increase in migration. This report is the second part of a two-part report series examining the migration of women from the Northern Triangle to Mexico.
