Seems the US Government’s strong measures to stop illegal entrants via Mexico border is on full swing.
In the first-of-its-kind move, the Mexican officials have found 311 Indians illegally entering Mexico and further trying to make their way to the United States.
The officials deported those Indians back, along with 60 federal migration agents, to New Delhi on a Boeing 747-400 charter and are scheduled to reach on October 18, 2019.
According to the Mexico’s National Immigration Institute (NIM), the deported Indians have reportedly entered Mexico in the last few months without the ‘valid documents’ required for ‘regular stay’.
Each member of the deported group had paid at least Rs 25-20 lakhs to the agents who promised them of safe travel to Mexico and from there to US illegally. As the sources say, the agents promised them of entry to US within a week-month period.
But to their surprise, the Mexico’s NMI caught them staying ‘without papers for regular stay’ and presented them before the immigration authorities of Oaxaca, Baja California, Veracruz, Chiapas, Sonora, Mexico City, Durango and Tabasco.
“This operation was carried out thanks to the excellent communication and coordination with the embassy of that Asian nation (India) with which the recognition and return of these citizens was worked under strict adherence to the migration law and regulations,” NMI said in a statement.
Each of the deported were issued a ‘emergency certificate’, a one-way travel document required to enter the destination nation in emergency.
NMI officials opine that Mexico has never before carried out such a big deportation operation.
According to sources, US Government’s warning of imposing tariffs on Mexican imports, if the latter fails to control illegal entries to US through its borders, might have definitely shown serious impact on Mexican authorities’ decision to carry out this operation.
