With the return of approximately 5.5 million compatriots who currently live in the U.S. and will most likely be deported under President-elect Donald J. Trump’s new immigration policies, local, state and federal authorities in Mexico are working on preparing several programs aimed at fighting abuse, human rights violations or crimes by members of organized crime upon their return.

Mexico’s National Migration Institute, the Ministries of Finance, Communications and Transportation, the Customs Administration, the National Commission of Security, and state and municipal governments will join forces to work on having the programs ready by January 2017.

According to data released by the National Migration Institution, Querétaro, San Luis Potosí, Michoacán, Zacatecas, Jalisco and Veracruz are expected to see the highest number of migrants returning, so officials will focus their efforts on training police officers and local officials in these states.
