Benjamin Hernandez to be deported for the sixth time, let’s copy Mexico, they deport 90% illegal migrants from Central America
While many Mexican politicians including President Enrique Peña Nieto decry GOP President Trump’s proposal for a border wall, Mexico reportedly deports nine in 10 Central American illegal migrants south of its own border.
Univision reports that Mexico strictly enforces its own immigration laws through strong border security which has led to the deportation of 87 percent, 92 percent, and 96 percent of illegal Salvadoran, Honduran and Guatemalan migrants respectively. The deportation data is valid for the first four months of 2016.
A total of 43,506 Central American illegal migrants were booted out of Mexico in the first third of 2016.
From October 2013 to April 2014, the United States apprehended 159,103 “other than Mexicans,” three times the 49,893 Central Americans detained by Mexico.
“Mexico is doing the dirty work, the very dirty work, for the United States,” said Tomas Gonzalez, a Franciscan friar who runs the “72” shelter for migrants in Tenosique, a town in the southern Mexico state of Tabasco.
Perhaps we’ll hear how the U.S. will assist Mexico with this first tier of security on their southern border as America sees a rollout of Trump’s “big, beautiful” wall.
An illegal immigrant from Guatemala who was arrested recently for giving a false name to Cincinnati police will likely be facing his sixth deportation.
The man arrested in Ohio is Benjamin DeLeon Hernandez, 36, and now faces an arraignment in U.S. District Court here on Feb. 1 for returning to the United States after being deported as an illegal immigrant and a convicted felon.
Hernandez has been deported from New Orleans and Mesa, Arizona, and three times from Houston.
“He’s pretty much a poster child for illegal reentry prosecution,” said W. Kelly Johnson, a former assistant federal public defender who now works at the Porter Wright law firm in Cincinnati. “He gets removed, and he comes back and he gets charged, over and over and over again … There’s probably not enough of a deterrent because obviously he just turns around and comes back.”
