Mexico: US Deportations to Ramp Up 07/15 06:25
MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexican officials say they expect 1,807 Mexicans who
have been issued final deportation orders in the U.S. to be returned to their
country in the coming days.
Officials at the Mexican Foreign Affairs Ministry say there was no
indication of an uptick in arrests of Mexicans without visas in major U.S.
cities as of mid-Sunday, as warned by U.S. President Donald J. Trump, but that
Mexican consulates are ready with legal assistance for additional migrants
caught in sweeps.
Foreign Relations Minister Marcelo Ebrard said, "we expect in the next few
days 1,807 people who already have final deportation orders to be deported."
For its part, Mexico deported 364 Hondurans back to their country on Friday
and Saturday alone, part of an effort to reduce arrivals of Central American
migrants in the U.S.
