Salvadoran Deportations Down in First Week of 2010

El Tiempo Latino, Posted: Jan 09, 2010

WASHINGTON -- El Salvador authorities are taking credit for a drop in the number of Salvadoran nationals ICE has deported this year, reports the Spanish-language weekly El Tiempo Latino. Officials at the Salvadoran embassy told the newspaper that the change was in direct response to a request they made to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to stop the raids and evaluate deportation conditions. In 2009, ICE deported some 400 Salvadorans every week. In the first week of January, El Tiempo Latino reports, only 220 Salvadorans were deported.

Salvadoran authorities also hope to improve the conditions of the deportees. Salvadoran Ambassador to the United States Francisco Altschul plans to travel to Arlington, Texas next week to follow a group of 100 deportees from the time they get out of jail until they arrive in El Salvador. The idea is to get to know first-hand what these people are going through," he said, "and then we'll be able to draw conclusions to analyze what can be changed.
