(KFTK) – FAIR’s communications director Dave Ray discussed the Trump administration's effort to returning migrants deep into Mexico, rather than just at the border.

“This is another tool in the toolbox that really has single-handedly stopped the immigration crisis,” Ray said.

The plan is different then what has been practiced before. Typically, illegal immigrants were dropped off at the border.

This effort has been requested by the Mexican government.

The Department of Homeland Security is planning to run two flights per week and expects to return about 250 migrants a week, starting at the end of the month, according to Fox News.

"This is another example of the Trump Administration working with the Government of Mexico to address the ongoing border security crisis," DHS spokeswoman Heather Swift told Fox News.

"Mexico has been a great partner in stopping illegal migration before they reach our border and in standing up the Migrant Protection Protocol which has allowed us to provide court dates to more than 55,000 individuals."
