Mexico deports 311 Indian migrants back to South Asia

Mexican immigration authorities say they have deported 311 Indian citizens in an unprecedented repatriation to that South Asian nation

The National Immigration Institute said in a statement late Wednesday that it had flown the 310 men and one woman to New Dehli from Toluca.

Mexico has stepped up its immigration enforcement in recent months under pressure from the United States. The government has deployed thousands of National Guard agents along the major migration routes.
