Mexico Suspends Deportations, Allowing Even More Invaders to Reach US

The Biden Border Rush continues, an ongoing invasion aided, abetted and encouraged by our own government.

Now Mexico has suspended deportations, so we can expect even more illegal migrants to make it to our southern border.

The country of Mexico serves as a sort of massive highway through which illegal invaders from around the world can arrive to Joe Biden’s Big Rock Candy Mountain.

Could it get worse? Oh certainly. It could always get worse.

Mexico’s immigration bureaucracy, the Instituto Nacional de Migración (INM) (“National Institute of Migration” for all you gringo readers), has announced they are just not going to deport anybody for a while. Deportations, or “assisted returns” as they call them, are suspended.

Why? It’s the end of the year and their government funding has dried up.

What? You mean Mexico deports people? Then how are so many getting through?

Basically, Mexican immigration policy is an incoherent mishmash.

Some illegals are detained and deported while many others are allowed to pass through Mexico to reach the U.S. border.

A December 1 memo from INM chief Francisco Garduno ordered the agency to suspend deportations and transfers.

There’s just no money for it, as the Mexican finance department suspended funding to the INM in November, due to “adjustments” at the end of the year.

The “transfers” mentioned in that memo refer to moving migrants from near the U.S. border back to southern Mexico.

As for the deportations – excuse me, the “assisted returns” – consider that every illegal alien Mexico deports back to his home country is one less illegal who is (at least for now) arriving to our border.

From January to October of this calendar year, the Mexican government deported 51,000 illegal aliens.

During the entire 2022 calendar year, Mexico deported nearly 122,000 people. That was lower than more than 130,000 in calendar year 2021.
