US Immigration: 142 Guyanese deported from U.S. in 2018

142 Guyanese deported from U.S. this year

U.S. immigration and other border officials have stepped up their campaign to send back immigrants who have broken laws.

This expanded ICE’s enforcement focus to include removable aliens who have been convicted of any criminal offence; have been charged with any criminal offence that has not been resolved; have committed acts which constitute a chargeable criminal offence; have engaged in fraud or willful misrepresentation in connection with any official matter before a governmental agency; have abused any program related to receipt of public benefits and are subject to a final order of removal but have not complied with their legal obligation to depart the United States.

A person can be removed also if they pose a risk to public safety or national security.

Leading the list of deportees were Mexicans at 141,045 with Guatemala at 50,390 and Honduras at almost 29,000. Brazil clocked 1,691 for this year with Ecuador and Colombia next.
The number of Jamaicans deported was 792. There were 336 Venezuelans sent back.
Nearer to home, in Trinidad and Tobago, 104 persons were deported this year. There were 17 Barbadians sent back.
