Central American migrants who breached US/Mexico border deported

Ninety eight Central American migrants from the Caravans, who tried to force their way over the Mexican/US Border are being deported. James Blears reports that the rest are being warned that breaking the law isn`t the answer to their problems or the desperation which led a few to try a futile dash.

Mexico`s National Migration Institute confirms that 98 migrants are in the process of being deported due to them breaking Border Security. The US Border Patrol fired tear gas into Mexico to stop migrants who`d broken through the wire from crossing into the United States. Mexico`s Ministry of Interior estimates that 500 attempted to do this. The US side puts the number as double of that.

Mexico`s Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo says there are good Mexican immigration laws and that the migrants would be well advised to observe them. Mexico`s National Human Rights Commission states: "Members of the Caravan who cross over our country must have respect and not take part in actions that affect the communities they`re passing through."

Francisco Vega, the Governor of Baja California says there are now nine thousand Central American Migrants there. And he`s appealing for the Federal Government to take responsibility for feeding and sheltering them.
