Mexico Takes Steps To Ease Return Of Young Immigrants

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mexico’s top diplomat says his country is taking steps to ease the return of young immigrants whose deportation protection is being rescinded by the Trump administration.

Mexico Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Videgaray acknowledged, however, that the immigrants would prefer to stay in the United States.

Videgaray said Tuesday in Los Angeles that if the immigrants returned to Mexico, it would be a win for his country and his government is making it easier to transfer education credits and created a job bank with them in mind.

He says Mexico will also provide legal assistance to immigrants in the U.S. and lobby U.S. lawmakers to draft a plan for them to obtain legal status in the United States.

About three-quarters of the 800,000 immigrants protected by the program are Mexican.

  1. These are ILLEGAL ALIENS, not “immigrants.”
    Even worse, the parents of these poor children ABANDONED them to smugglers, or simply dumped them on the side of the road.
    The parents of ‘dreamers’ are the worst examples of parenting out there.

    *Real* Immigrants come in legally, they’ve waited in a long line, and they’re processed by USCIS.
