Of these, 117,689 migrants (65.6 percent) were returned to their place of origin.
As for Mexicans, the 2019 figure will be higher than the 2017 record, the first year of President Donald Trump's administration, and will be at the same level of 2016, the last period of Barack Obama, characterized by rigorous measures against Mexicans, even in against those who lived for decades in the neighboring country.
The United States has maintained in the last five years an upward trend in deportation of Mexicans, which is confirmed this year.
In turn, the Trump administration repatriated from January to November 2019 to 121 thousand 825 people from the so-called Northern Triangle of Central America (El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras), who traveled through Mexico, which means an increase of 28 thousand 525 cases, 27 percent more than in 2018.

To the flow of individuals in transit through Mexico must be added 58 thousand 579 asylum seekers, also the majority of Central Americans, who since January 29 are returned to Mexico, to await response to their proceedings in US courts.
