New Study Shows U.S. Immigration Officials Frequently Use Coercive Tactics to Deport Mexican Migrants

The American Immigration Council's latest report provided a hard-hitting study exposing the degree to which U.S. immigration officials prevent migrants in their custody from accessing critical information and processes. Deportations in the Dark: Lack of Process and Information in the Removal of Mexican Migrants explains the stark findings of an empirical investigation into the behavioral patterns of U.S. immigration authorities during the apprehension, custody, and removal of Mexican migrants from the United States. The study found that migrants are frequently deprived of legally required information, thwarted from contacting their consulates, compelled to sign documents they cannot read or understand, threatened with protracted detention, and blocked from applying for asylum and other legal claims.
