GUERRERO-ORTIZ, Martha  and  JARAMILLO-CARDONA, Martha Cecilia. Deportation and violation of the rights of migrants on both borders. Convergencia [online]. 2015, vol.22, n.69, pp.85-106. ISSN 2448-5799.

Many national and international organizations consider that the U.S. economic crisis is the reason behind a significant decrease of migratory flows, from and through Mexico, towards the United States in 2009. This has also increased the number of cases of abuse and deportation of migrants. This paper analyzes the cause for deportation of migrants from all over the United States to Mexico. Furthermore, we will depict the violence and abuse that this vulnerable group of people are subject to in Mexico, not only by municipal, federal or migration authorities, but by other actors of the migratory process, called "coyotes", who also violate migrant's human rights.

Keywords : deportation; migration; United States; abuse; human rights.
