washington - US President Donald Trump has this year a quarter fewer Mexicans evicted than his predecessor Barack Obama. This is shown by data from the Mexican Ministry of the Interior. The figures are remarkable given Trump's fierce anti-immigration position.

For example, during his campaign as presidential candidate, he said about Mexicans: 'They are not our friends, believe me. They bring drugs. They bring crime. They are rapists. And a few, I assume, are good people. 'When he took office, he promised to return' millions 'of illegal immigrants and to work on a wall that would counter the influx of Mexicans.

The Mexican figures show that 152,000 Mexicans were returned by the US between January and November. The year before, when Obama was still in power, there were 205,000 in the same period.
