La llegada masiva de migrantes haitianos a la frontera en Acuña-Del Río provocó el cierre del puente binacional y tuvo un alto costo económico. Sólo el comercio local perdió aproximadamente 77 millones de pesos en ocho días. El gobierno municipal y la sociedad civil se encargaron de alojar y atender a la gente en albergues, pero dirigentes empresariales locales acusan a las instituciones federales, como el INM, de estar rebasadas o, de plano, ausentes en esta crisis.
