The US is not the only country deporting migrants. Our neighbor to the south is also sending migrants back their home countries in an effort to contain the COVID-19 outbreak there.
When the US deports illegal migrants, leaders of the left like Nancy Pelosi are outraged. They and their media enablers drone on about the fundamental human rights that are supposedly violated by national border enforcement.
So where are Pelosi and Co. now?
They certainly aren’t condemning Mexico. It seems deportation is a crime only when America does it.
Mexican authorities have emptied the government migrant centers. Mexico has almost 15,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus and almost 1,500 deaths as of this writing.
According to Reuters:
In a statement, the National Migration Institute (INM) said that since March 21, in order to comply with health and safety guidelines, it had been removing migrants from its 65 migrant facilities, which held 3,759 people last month.
Most of the migrants, who entered Mexico illegally, have been returned to their home countries, but there are still non-governmental migrant centers harboring immigrants.
In the US, where the outbreak is much worse, CBP has been immediately deporting any new arrivals at the border. President Trump recently signed an executive order halting immigration for the next 60 days with the option to extend or diminish the order as needed. Migrant farmworkers will be allowed to enter the country to work in the agricultural industry.
