Mexico: US Deportations to Ramp Up     07/15 06:25

   MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexican officials say they expect 1,807 Mexicans who 
have been issued final deportation orders in the U.S. to be returned to their 
country in the coming days.

   Officials at the Mexican Foreign Affairs Ministry say there was no 
indication of an uptick in arrests of Mexicans without visas in major U.S. 
cities as of mid-Sunday, as warned by U.S. President Donald J. Trump, but that 
Mexican consulates are ready with legal assistance for additional migrants 
caught in sweeps.

   Foreign Relations Minister Marcelo Ebrard said, "we expect in the next few 
days 1,807 people who already have final deportation orders to be deported."

   For its part, Mexico deported 364 Hondurans back to their country on Friday 
and Saturday alone, part of an effort to reduce arrivals of Central American 
migrants in the U.S.
