Majority of migrants deported from US young Mexican men, figures show
By Rory Carroll

Most of the undocumented people deported from the United States last year were young Mexican men, according to a new study. Mexican nationals comprised 65.5% of the 368,644 deportees, and of them the vast majority were men in their twenties and thirties, said the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a data research organisation at Syracuse University. The figure, based on data obtained from US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, showed a more detailed picture than government numbers and shined a fresh light on the Obama administration's deportation policies. Almost all of the deportees, 93%, were male. Almost four in five, 279,270, were aged between 20 and 39.
