Mexican migration authorities said they have deported 2,300 Hondurans who illegally crossed over from Guatemala with a caravan heading to the United States.
The “assisted return” of the Central Americans took place between January 18 and Monday, according to the interior ministry and the National Migration Institute.
A total of 1,064 Honduran migrants were deported on National Guard planes and charter aircraft, they said in a statement.
Another 1,239 were repatriated by land from the southern states of Chiapas and Tabasco, the institute said.
The Central Americans entered Mexico last week from Guatemala with the so-called “2020 Caravan” with the intention of heading to the United States.
Mexican authorities said the deportations were carried out “in compliance with the migration law and with full respect for human rights.”
Thank you, Mexico for helping out the US. These people will now spread the word that you can’t pick which country to apply for asylum. Maybe, just maybe, they will hear from those who were returned to their country that they need to think twice before joining a caravan.

Every country has the right to protect its borders! The US is a melting pot of immigrants and I think a better country for it, but it has to be done legally and those legal immigrants should adhere to our laws and regulations!
