Young Mexican Men Were Most Likely To Be Deported In 2013
By Elise Foley

WASHINGTON -- A majority of the immigrants who were deported last year were Mexican citizens, male and in their twenties or thirties, according to a report released on Thursday. The report from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, based on data obtained from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, showed a more detailed picture of the nearly 370,000 removals from the country last year than previously-released ICE data. Men were deported at far higher rates than women -- 93 percent of ICE deportees were male, according to TRAC's findings. The highest proportion came from 20- to 29-year-olds, who accounted for nearly 155,000 of the removals in 2013, while close to 124,300 deportations were of people between the ages of 30 and 39. Nearly half of those deported overall were under the age of 30. About 19,800 of those deported were under the age of 20, most of them between 15 and 19 years old.
