U.S. Deports 90,000 Mexican Children

Univision, Posted: Aug 13, 2008

MEXICO CITY -- A report released by a group that studies immigration for Mexicos opposition party PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party) found that the United States has deported at least 90,000 children to Mexico this year, reports Univision. The study found that during the same period, January to July 2008, 300,000 adults were deported. About 15 percent of the deported children (about 13,500) have been abandoned at the U.S.- Mexico border and now live without any government protection, aided only by religious or non-profit groups. The study also found that for every three adults deported, a Mexican child is abandoned in the United States. Leaders of U.S. immigrant rights groups say these figures are possible, but could not confirm them.
