Trump’s policies work: 35,000 illegal aliens have returned home
35,000 illegal aliens who were sent to Mexico to wait for U.S. courts to process their asylum applications have voluntarily returned home.
Since January, the administration has returned 55,000 immigrants to Mexico, and currently, according to estimates by the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), some 20,000 people remain in Mexico waiting to process their asylum applications.
This means “a significant proportion of the 55,000+ MPP returnees have chosen to abandon their claims,” the report said.
The report also highlights the work of the International Organization for Migration, supported in part by the U.S. government, which is helping immigrants return home free of charge if they so wish.
Almost 900 immigrants participated in this program of return to their countries with assistance.
