But somehow Americans are Racists
- Mexico rightly deports illegal aliens pouring over their southern border and gets no criticism. But if the U.S. dares to try enforce our border we are called racists.
Mexican officials have deported more than 13,000 of the 14,000 undocumented, unaccompanied minors who have been caught at Mexico’s southern border, a rate significantly higher than in the United States, according to government sources familiar with the situation.
Additionally, Mexican authorities have deported more than 64,000 of the estimated 69,000 adults that have been detained along their southern border this year.
Those numbers stand in stark contrast to the deportation of minor immigrants from the United States: None of the more than 60,000 Central American minors detained this year have been deported reports BuzzFeed.
According to a Department of Homeland Security spokesman, those minors — who are estimated to total as many as 90,000 by year’s end — must first make their way through the legal system, which has seen significant backlogs, because they qualify to apply for asylum status.
According to Mexican government sources, the vast majority of unaccompanied minors detained at the country’s southern border comes from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, the majority are between the ages of 12 and 17, and most are boys. Government officials provide the minors with temporary shelter, food, clothing, and medical treatment while in custody.
Most unaccompanied minors are returned to their country of origin by plane by Mexican authorities, while Central American children who are accompanied by an adult family member are also provided with bus tickets to their countries of origin.
