Mexico rejected U.S. plan on third country deportees

Miguel Angel Osorio ChongThe Mexican government made clear to visiting U.S. emissaries that it will not accept deportees from third countries under any circumstances.

Miguel Angel Osorio Chong said in an interview with Radio Formula that U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly asked Mexican officials during their visit if they would host deportees from other countries while their immigration cases are processed in the U.S.

"They can't leave them here on the border because we have to reject them. There is no chance they would be received by Mexico," he said of the deportees.

"They asked us that while their legal process is happening there if they could be here," Osorio Chong said. "And we told them that there's no way we can have them here during that process."

A memo published by the Department of Homeland Security suggested that U.S. immigration officials could deport immigrants in the country illegally to the contiguous country they had entered from, which in the vast majority of cases would be Mexico.
