As proof of the toughening of Mexican control to contain the persistent irregular migration of Central Americans that shot up on October 2018, Mexico registered the highest number of deportations by land of Guatemalans, Hondurans, Salvadorans, and Nicaraguans from January to July 2019 since 2010, with the exception of 2015 in that same period, the government of Guatemala informed today.
Through the land border of Guatemala, Mexico deported 90,452 Central Americans from January to July 2019, which is close to the total of deportations of 2018, 98,133, and exceeded more than half of the 158,789 deportations in 2015, which was the year with more expulsions since 2010 when the count started, as reported a group of statistics of the Guatemalan Migration Institute (IGM) obtained by EL UNIVERSAL.
Deportations of Central Americans from January to July 2015 from Mexico to Guatemala added to 97,100, in comparison to 60,060 in the same months of 2014, according to the IGM.
Last June, Mexico deployed thousands of soldiers of the National Guard on the northern and southern borders to stop the multitudinous streams of irregular Central American migrants headed to the United States.
On June 7th, Washington threatened Mexico with progressive tariffs to its exports to the U.S. if it did not establish tougher restrictions to illegal Central American travelers who passed through Mexico and if it did not comply with American President Donald Trump’s harsh policies against migration.
