U.S. to help Mex­ico de­port mi­grants

The U.S. gov­ern­ment plans to spend $20 mil­lion to help Mex­ico de­port thou­sands of mi­grants who have en­tered the coun­try hop­ing to reach the United States. Ac­cord­ing to a no­ti­fi­ca­tion that State De­part­ment of­fi­cials sent to Congress, the money would be used to cover the cost of bus and plane tick­ets to de­port up to 17,000 mi­grants from Mex­ico to their coun­tries of ori­gin. “This one-time in­fu­sion of as­sis­tance will help the [gov­ern­ment of Mex­ico] ad­dress, and po­ten­tially de­ter, ir­reg­u­lar mi­grant flows,” the no­ti­fi­ca­tion said.
