U.S.-MEXICO INTERIOR REPATRIATION PROGRAM SHOWS PROMISE

 U.S.-MEXICO INTERIOR REPATRIATION PROGRAM SHOWS PROMISE
 WASHINGTON, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the Federation for American Immigration Reform issued the following statement:
 The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), representing over 50,000 Americans nationwide, wishes to extend its appreciation to the Department of Justice and the government of Mexico in reaching joint cooperative agreements to repatriate two Mexico City Mexican nationals convicted of crimes in the United States.
 Mexican Interior Repatriation Project (MIRP) repatriates to Mexico City aliens convicted in the California State Prison System.
 According to Dan Stein, executive director of FAIR: "This program is important for several reasons. It relieves the burden on state prison systems of detaining deportable aliens. More importantly, it revives the long-dormant concept of interior repatriation, absent for over 15 years from our U.S.-Mexico border control programs. The administration is to be commended," Stein said. "While we appreciate the sensitivity of this issue with the Mexican government, we are deeply grateful that, in the spirit of cooperation implied by the U.S.-Mexico Free Trade Agreement, the political will was found to achieve this heightened cooperation between governments."
 The Federation for American Immigration Reform is a national public interest organization working for an end to illegal immigration and stabilized immigration rates consistent with U.S. population stabilization. FAIR has recently called for a three-year moratorium on most legal immigration, while U.S. immigration law can be restructured to reduce overall numbers. FAIR has argued that restoring the concept of interior repatriation of deportable aliens to Mexico is an important and critical component of any effective U.S.-Mexico border security operation.
