Trump Admin. Starts Deporting Mexican Nationals Hundreds Of Miles From Border

DHS has begun returning illegal aliens deeper into Mexico and closer to their hometowns in the hope they won't return.

Tucson, AZ – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has begun returning illegal immigrants deeper into Mexico’s interior in an effort to keep them from returning.

DHS began running flights from Tucson to Guadalajara, Mexico in December of 2019 to return Mexican nationals from non-border states who recently illegally crossed the border or who have already been ruled deportable by the court, FOX News reported.

In the past, illegal aliens were released on the southern side of the border of Mexico and the United States.

But that made it too easy for them to turn around and try to re-enter the country illegally again, FOX News reported.

Officials said that Mexican officials requested the move and said sending illegal immigrants back closer to their hometowns improved their access to government services.

“This is another example of the Trump Administration working with the Government of Mexico to address the ongoing border security crisis,” DHS Spokeswoman Heather Swift told FOX News. “Mexico has been a great partner in stopping illegal migration before they reach our border and in standing up the Migrant Protection Protocol which has allowed us to provide court dates to more than 55,000 individuals.”

DHS has said it intended to begin running two flights a week by the end of January to deliver at least 250 illegal aliens back home, FOX News reported.

The new Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP) has been referred to as the “Remain in Mexico Policy” and ended the practice of “catch-and-release” that had been used extensively at the United States – Mexico border.

Critics say the Mexican nationals are put in danger when they’re returned over the border and have challenged the practice in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, FOX News reported.

MPP was expanded over the summer and into the fall, but the illegal immigrants being delivered back to Mexico’s interior were not part of that program.

Regional cooperation has also resulted in agreements with Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras that helped reduce the number of apprehensions at the border by more than 70 percent since May, FOX News reported.

God bless President Trump for putting America first and doing his best to fulfill all of his campaign promises. This is really exceptional, as very few politicians actually do that.

He just got another $7.2B for The Wall yesterday from the Pentagon budget, five times what Congress authorized for 2020, which should allow for over 800 miles of border construction. I guess that's what happens when you decide not to start a massive war with Iran and actually focus on the real threats to America.

It's going to mean even more jobs for African Americans, youth, and everyone who will not have as much competition from illegal immigrants willing to work for lower wages in exchange for not contributing tax dollars. Wages are going to rise for most people, like they have been doing for a change.

It's also going to mean lower crime and ICE/DHS/Border Control expenses than we taxpayers would otherwise have to pay for.

Come legally, and we will welcome you with open arms. Come illegally, and you should be sent home immediately.

The Dems will tell you, when they refer to Trump, that "no one should be above the law," but if you were to ask them about 14,000,000 illegals who take jobs from your kids, they will look the other way.

Make America Even Greater. Trump/Pence 2020.

I like the delivery to the middle of the country. At the south side of the city so maybe they will have a chance to ask for work there while looking for a ride north. 9_9

A good effort. I applaud this move. However I doubt that it will deter illegals from turning around making their way back north towards America.

Immediately following the Korean War, President Eisenhower instituted "Operation Wetback" to open up jobs for the returning soldiers. During that program, the illegals were put on ships and dropped off in Southern Mexico, in hopes they would not make the long trek back to the US. However, George Soros and his ilk were not funding caravans to invade the US back then.

"ongoing border security crisis" 🤣 Yeah right. Trump was handed a five decade low of illegal immigration then he started jailing asylum seekers to juice the numbers and manufacture a crisis. Anyone who buys into this garbage is inbred or has brain damage
