Reportedly, the US president Donald Trump administration planned to offer Mexico USD 20 million in foreign assistance funds which aims to check the alleged flow of illegal immigrants in the country. This will indeed help Mexico to deport up to 17,000 undocumented immigrants from US.
As per reports, the notice has been sent for a Congressional approval which talks about paying Mexico, plane and bus fare to deport the illegal immigrants.
This will also help to increase deportations of Central Americans, many of whom use Mexico to escape into US.
Under the program, the notice even points that any unauthorized immigrant in Mexico who is a suspected terrorist will also be deported.
Katie Waldman, a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security said, “We are working closely with our Mexican counterparts to confront rising border apprehension numbers – specifically, a 38 percent increase in families this month alone – directly and to ensure that those with legitimate claims have access to appropriate protections.”
However, the Mexican government has not yet responded to it. The move made by US government plants to reduce the number of immigrants crossing the border.
