Mexico to discuss deportations with Trump team
Mexico’s government will discuss with US President-elect Donald Trump’s incoming administration his plan to jail or deport millions of undocumented migrants with criminal records. President Enrique Pena Nieto has given instructions to his ministries to consider any “contingencies” in case Mr Trump undertakes massive deportations when he takes office in January. Mr Pena Nieto said last week that he had agreed to meet with Mr Trump, possibly before the Republican billionaire takes office, and that he felt “optimistic” about future relations. In a recent interview, Mr Trump said that up to 3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records would be deported. The US has an estimated 11-12 million undocumented migrants, mostly of Mexican origin.
