President Donald Trump sent 26 per cent fewer Mexicans back home this year despite his vows to crackdown on illegal immigration.
According to new data from Mexico’s Interior Ministry, Trump has sent home fewer Mexicans through November than former president Barack Obama did in the same period in 2016.
About 152,000 Mexican nationals were deported from the US between January and November, according to Bloomberg.
Under Obama, 205,000 Mexican nationals were deported during the first 11 months of 2016.
During the election, Trump vowed to target criminals for deportation and warned that they were ‘going out fast.’
