SAN FRANCISCO — If you are an American citizen, you have to go to Mexico to get your visa, and the US has been cracking down on visa fraud since President Donald Trump took office.
The State Department has estimated that more than 10 million people, most of them from Mexico, have been deported to the United States since Trump took the reins of the Department of Homeland Security.
The number of people deported to Mexico is not the only statistic that has increased in recent years.
The State Department also has reported that the number of US citizens living in Mexico has more than doubled since Trump came into office, jumping from 2.2 million in 2018 to 5.9 million last year.
The State Departments official estimate for 2018 puts the total number of Mexicans living in the US as well as Mexicans residing in Mexico at more than 13.7 million.
Mexico’s economy is estimated to have grown by $1.7 trillion in the first seven months of 2019.
More:Mexico is one of the largest recipients of US immigration enforcement visas.
Mexicans have the highest number of visas and permits issued for the United Nations Population Fund.
The total number granted to the State Deps Department in fiscal year 2019 was $1,664 million, compared to $1 million in fiscal 2019, according to the Government Accountability Office.
The department has not provided the number to the Department for the fiscal year 2020 report, but said it has “the highest number and highest volume of visas granted in any calendar year for at least the last 30 years.”
