FOOD FOR THOUGHT LAST YEAR (FY-01) MEXICAN INM APPREHENDED 75,000 ILLEGAL MIGRANTS FROM CENTRAL AMERICA WHO WERE DESTINED TO THE US. DUE TO A LACK OF MANPOWER, EQUIPMENT AND CAPITAL, THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT BELIEVES THEY ARE ONLY APPREHENDING 25-50% OF THE MIGRANTS CROSSING THEIR BORDERS. FY-01 THE US BORDER PATROL APPREHENDED 23,500 CENTRAL AMERICANS.
