    "The Trump administration has started returning Mexican migrants deep into the country’s interior as part of an expanding effort to deter illegal immigration and combat the ongoing crisis at the border.

    The Department of Homeland Security started running flights from Tucson, Ariz., to Guadalajara in December. Officials say the migrants being returned are all Mexican nationals from non-border Mexican states who typically have either recently illegally entered the U.S., or who had gone through the court system but were ruled to be deportable by an immigration judge.

    The plan marks a departure from past practice of releasing migrants at the border. The idea would be to make it harder for repeat offenders to try and cross the border again if they are returned hundreds of miles away. Officials say returning people closer to their hometowns is better for them as well, and allows them to receive services from the Mexican government."

    The southern tip of Chile would be better. Don

    When the left starts complaining about this and they will, just tell them it is common sense immigration/immigrant control.

    Utter nonsense! Only some US government officials could come up with this spin.

    Reality (that no US official will ever speak) follows. Most of these people are from south of Guadalajara. If they are returned enough times to a major city near this home areas, maybe they will figure out to organize and drive out the drug dealers and all the corrupt Mexican officials. Mordida anyone?

    That would be bad for the Chilean people. Better to drop them off at the next point to the south !

    Actually Eisenhower rented cruise ships and took them deep south.

    Don't care where they send them, just get them far away from our country.

    IMO fingerprint them, pictures, identifying features (I.E. Tats, scars, piercings...) i.e. Practicle retinal scan, DNA sample. Make it clear returning illegally will be punished.

    Tell the Left it's pro-choice!
    They choose to break our laws, we choose to give them free airfare.
    Win/win!

    Or use the word "comprehensive." They seem to like that one.
