El Salvador inaugurates remodeling facilities at the Las Chinamas border

This Tuesday afternoon, the authorities of the Government of El Salvador inaugurated the remodeling of the Las Chinamas border facilities in the department of Ahuachapán.

During the activity, the Minister of Public Works, Romeo Rodríguez, the Minister of Security, Gustavo Villatoro, and the Director of Migration, Ricardo Cucalón, were present.

“In these totally comfortable facilities, with air conditioning, furniture to rest on, and a play area, we are receiving more than 5,000 people daily,” said the director of migration.

He added that immigration officers “will have a space with better conditions.”

For his part, the Minister of Public Works explained that the facilities have a tunnel area where vehicles can enter to carry out migration procedures. He added that all the institutions involved worked together on the renovations and that now the procedures are carried out in a more agile way.

In addition, he indicated that an investment of close to $700,000 was made.

“The perimeter fence (150 linear meters) of the border point of Las Chinamas, in Ahuachapán, which was practically falling, was renewed. It was completely rebuilt,” Rodríguez explained.

While the Minister of Security explained that these results are the “fruit of the articulated work ordered by our President Nayib Bukele”, and that this type of work will continue to be carried out at other border points.
