US de­por­ta­tions down

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

MEX­ICO CITY: The num­ber of un­doc­u­mented Mex­i­cans de­ported by US au­thor­i­ties has fallen un­der Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, de­spite his ad­min­is­tra­tion’s vo­cal an­ti­im­mi­grant stance, Mex­ico has re­ported.

To date, the US has de­ported 29 000 fewer im­mi­grants than over the same pe­riod last year, when Barack Obama was still pres­i­dent, Mex­ico’s deputy min­is­ter of Im­mi­gra­tion Hum­berto Roque Vil­lanueva said.

Mex­ico has not seen the mass de­por­ta­tions it feared un­der Trump, but will re­main vig­i­lant. Mex­ico “will con­tinue to pay close at­ten­tion,” he said. Xin­hua
