    “Mexico's deportations of Central American migrants are rising” by Deborah Bonello, LA Times, 9-4-15

    Mexico is on track to catch and deport thousands more Central American migrants than the United States this year, according to a new report.

    By the end of this year, Mexico is expected to have deported 70% more Central American migrants than it did in 2014, according to the report by the Migration Policy Institute, a think tank based in Washington.

    In comparison, U.S. apprehensions of immigrants in the country illegally are expected to be down by half this year, compared with 2014.

    Mexico has apprehended 173,000 Central American migrants in 2015, according to Mexico's National Migration Institute, the report says, compared with 110,000 in the United States, according to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol also says Mexico deported about six times as many unaccompanied children as the United States last year, and that number is expected to double to 12 times more in 2015.

    Mexican authorities had for years largely turned a blind eye to the tens of thousands of migrants passing through on their way north, despite widespread reports that criminal gangs and corrupt law officials were kidnapping and "disappearing" thousands of them each year and extorting money from many.

    But the government came under intense pressure from the U.S last year to crack down on migrants after waves of children from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala began arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, where about 52,000 were apprehended in 2014.

    Mexico last summer launched its Plan Frontera Sur, or Southern Border Program. Priorities of the strategy include keeping migrants from riding the trains (known as La Bestia or the beast) across Mexico, stemming the flow of migrants across its southern border and creating a new type of visa to allow people from Central America to enter the country legally, reducing their vulnerability to extortion.

    But some human rights activists who work with migrants in the many shelters around Mexico say that the plan has resulted in an increase in violence and persecution of migrants.

    The think tank report emphasized the need to tackle the causes of migration in violence-ridden countries such as El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.

    "Balanced approaches to regional migration dynamics must include ways not just to shift the flows, but to deflate the pressures that cause them," the report says.

    “Migrants defiant as Hungary blocks train links for 2nd day”- Associated Press, LA Times, 9-2-15

    Hundreds of migrants chanted defiant slogans outside Budapest's main international train station Wednesday as Hungarian police blocked them for a second day from seeking asylum in Germany and other wealthy European Union countries.

    "What we want? Peace! What we need? Peace!" a few hundred migrants chanted outside Keleti station, the latest focal point for continent wide tensions over the unrelenting flow of migrants from the Middle East, Asia and Africa fleeing war and poverty.

    At other pressure points in the route into Europe, Turkish media reported that 11 migrants drowned as they tried to cross the sea to Greece. French authorities said cross-Channel Eurostar trains were returning to normal Wednesday after serious overnight disruptions triggered by reports of migrants running on the undersea tunnel tracks and trying to climb atop trains.

    On a beach in Turkey, Turkish media showed the body of a child and reported the 11 deaths. Six other migrants were rescued and five others remained missing when two boats carrying them from Bodrum to the nearby Greek island of Kos capsized Wednesday. The private Dogan agency said the dead included a mother and three children.

    The Greek coast guard recovered the body of a man south of the tiny island of Kalolimnos. It was unclear if he was connected to the Bodrum deaths.

    Hungary's police said they intend to reinforce their positions outside the Keleti terminal as the volume of migrants arriving from Serbia grows by the hour, with an estimated 3,000 already encamped near the station. They said officers working jointly with colleagues from Austria, Germany and Slovakia also were searching for migrants traveling illegally on other Hungarian trains.
    The clampdown has had an immediate effect in the migrants' primary target country, Germany.

    German police reported Wednesday that only about 50 migrants arrived on the morning trains to Munich, compared to 2,400 on Tuesday. The German border town of Rosenheim received no more than 70 migrants, compared to 300 on Tuesday.

    The Greek coast guard, meanwhile, said it had rescued 1,058 people in 28 Aegean Sea locations over the past 24 hours. More than 200,000 migrants have reached Greece this year, chiefly from neighboring Turkey, where more than 1 million live in refugee camps fueled by warfare in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Greek police also arrested six suspected smugglers in northern Greece after finding 103 migrants, including 19 children, hidden in a truck.

    In France, passengers aboard one Paris-to-London train said their service was suspended because migrants trying to climb aboard the train had damaged fire safety equipment. In tweets, passengers also described seeing migrants running along the roofs of another train near the migrant-besieged French port of Calais.

    Hungary's prime minister, Viktor Orban, is scheduled to meet EU chiefs Thursday to discuss his country's handling of its unprecedented flow of migrants this year. While Germany says it expects to receive 800,000 migrants — quadruple last year's figure — many other EU nations face criticism for failing to commit to housing more asylum seekers.

    In non-EU member Iceland, a populist movement is challenging the government's pledge to host just 50 Syrians, taking to social media to urge their government to do more. While some went online to commit to opening their homes to a war refugee, others called on Iceland to open a disused army base to serve as migrant housing.

    Naval vessels from several nations continued to patrol Mediterranean waters off the coast of Libya on Wednesday in hopes of preventing more mass drownings of migrants. A Norwegian vessel was carrying about 800 rescued migrants, including 11 pregnant women and more than 30 children, to Cagliari on Italy's island of Sardinia.
