NEW DELHI: More than 300 Indians, including a woman, who were deported by Mexican immigration authorities for illegally entering the country to sneak into the United States landed here Friday morning.

We landed around 5 am in the morning and the formalities took several hours before we could leave the airport around 1 pm, said Jashanpreet Singh, one of the deportees.

According to a press release issued by the National Migration Institute of Mexico (INM) on Wednesday, Indian citizens, who did not have a condition of regular stay in the country, were deported from the International Airport of the city of Toluca in a Boeing plane 747 to New Delhi. .

People were presented to the immigration authority in the states of Oaxaca Veracruz, Chiapas, Sonora Mexico City Y.

The movement comes after the president of the United States Donald Trump in June it threatened tariffs on all Mexican imports if the country did not control people entering the United States through Mexico's borders.

Mexico had agreed to increase border security and expand its policy of recovering immigrants.
