According to reports, the gunmen ransacked the building and took away the guest's register, so the specific identity of the abductees was difficult to determine. The prosecutor in San Luis Potosí said in a statement that "we are working hard to identify them," and also said that an investigation has been carried out and efforts to rescue the abductees.
According to the report, the statement did not specify whether the kidnapped Haitians and Venezuelans were immigrants to the United States. The report mentioned that many immigrants are in great danger on their way to the United States, some being kidnapped, extorted, raped and even murdered. Some immigrants were also conscripted to work for drug trafficking groups.
