Mexico deports illegal Indian migrants

Date: 19 October 2019 Tags: Miscellaneous

Issue

 More than 300 Indians were deported back by Mexican immigration authorities for illegally entering the country to sneak into the United States.

 

Background

Large number of people, especially from 3rd world countries try to enter into the US illegally through porous borders of Mexico. Eventhough it is risky and tiring, immigrants undertake it, hoping for a secured future in the US.

 

Details

  • The journey for the majority of the deportees, who are from Punjab and Haryana, started from Ecuador and ended in Mexico via Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala, which is the standard route followed by the immigrants to enter into the US illegally.

  • Citing rampant migrational trends, US President Donald Trump had threatened tariffs on all Mexican imports if the country did not put a check on people entering America through Mexico's borders.

  • Mexico had agreed to boost security on the border and expand its policy of taking back migrants.
