Salvadoran Officials: Deportations Will Increase Violence In Our Country

on

Families and friends outside El Salvador’s international airport all come together to see their loved ones who have been deported out of the US by president Trump.

Salvadoran officials are very worried about the large amount of illegals coming back into their country.

Families, however, are very happy to have them return but have many concerns,

“I am glad to be seeing him of course. But I am also sad because he is leaving his children in the United States,” she says. “And I worry about how he will survive here, and how our family will survive.”

Reports claim many family’s are sharing anxiety in this small Central American nation of “coffee growers and sugar plantations.” Statistics show almost “1.2 million people who were born in El Salvador live in the United States and, last year, they sent home $4.6 billion – equivalent to 17% of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), one of the highest remittance rates in the world.”

Americans are sick and tired of all the illegal immigration causing crime and corruption, and are very grateful for President Trump keeping all his promises.

According to the dailycaller,

Top Salvadoran officials are worried about deportations of their compatriots from the U.S., as they think the returnees will cause crime.

El Comercio wrote Thursday that El Salvador’s Minister of Defense David Munguia Payes told reporters, “We know that if there are massive deportations from the U.S., it will increase violence in the country.”

The worry from Salvadoran officials is due to the Trump administration’s focus on MS 13, a Salvadoran gang whose leadership still remains in the Central American nation. MS 13 gained strength in the 1990s after thousands of gang members were deported from the U.S.

The defense minister said that the deported illegal immigrants will cause tension between gangs. The Salvadoran government is weighing an initiative that would make deportees with criminal records check in monthly with police, according to El Comercio.

The nation’s vice president, Oscar Ortiz, said these monthly reports would be to make sure the deported illegal immigrants aren’t involved in any illegal activities. Meanwhile, the defense minister did not rule out arresting these criminals upon arrival in El Salvador.



A recent report from a think tank said that to prevent violence in Central America the Trump administration should “refrain from instigating mass deportations or harsher anti-migration measures.”

    The salvadorian VP isn’t living in the real world! You can’t join a gang and then NOT have illegal activity? Is he on crack? Probably…
