CALVA SANCHEZ, Luis Enrique  and  ALARCON ACOSTA, Rafael. Deported Mexican Migrants and their Plans to Reenter the United States at the Beginning of Donald Trump’s Administration. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2018, vol.63, n.233, pp.43-68. ISSN 0185-1918.

This article examines the deportation of Mexicans from the United States since 2000, highlighting what happened in the first year of the Trump administration. It also analyzes the impact of this deportation on cities in the border region of Mexico in relation to the deportees’ plans for their future, which includes trying to reenter the United States. A descriptive and comparative analysis of administrative records and surveys of both countries is used which shows a downward trend in the annual number of deportations, including 2017, as well as a decrease in the intention to reenter the United States. In addition, in 2016 only 13% of the deportees said they would remain in border cities.

Keywords : deportation; return; border; Mexico; United States.
