Mex­ico to dis­cuss de­por­ta­tions with Trump team

The Myanmar Times - - World -

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.
