The Government of Jair Bolsonaro authorized this Thursday the use of the Armed Forces on the border between Brazil and Peru, where the number of foreign migrants has increased in recent days, mostly Haitians prevented from entering the neighboring country by the pandemic of the coronavirus.

According to a decree of the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, published this Thursday in the Official Gazette, the National Forces will support local authorities “in the activities of exceptional and temporary blocking of the entry of foreigners into the country, in an episodic and planned manner. ”.

The measure, which will last for sixty days but can be extended, seeks to help contain the arrival of migrants to the small border municipality of Assis, where at least 500 foreigners, mostly Haitians, from different regions of Brazil are stranded.
