Between July and December this year, the United States has deported 87 Costa Ricans, this according to the U.S. Embassy in San José.

The Embassy said that the majority of the deportations have been for “immigration issues”. Others have been deported following convictions for crimes in the Unite States, such as:

  • Domestic violence
  • Terrorism
  • Assault
  • Drug Trafficking
  • Extortion
  • Homicide
  • Child Pornography
  • Illegal possession of weapons
  • Obscene acts
  • Fraud

The deportation figure has dropped in the last five years.

In 2009, 360 Ticos were deported, while in 2010 the number had dropped to 309. In 2011, the number of deportations dropped to 271 and last year a total of 245 Costa Ricans were removed from the United States.

The 87 deportees for the last five months are not the only deportations for the year, says the Embassy, saying “we do not have the information for the first six months of the year”.

[quote]Extrapolating the average of 14 deportations each month for the last five months, we can arrive at a possible total of 168 for 2013, less than half of that in 2009.[/quote]

The state/city of the majority of the deportees includes: New Jersey (where there is perhaps the largest Costa Rican expat community in the U.S.), New York, Houston, Atlanta, Washington DC and California.

On the flipcoin, the number of Costa Ricans looking for the “American dream” – that is headed north to the United States from Costa Rica – was 78.000 in 2011 (the last year for available figures), a drop from the 86.000 in 2009.

Official records indicate that the majority of Costa Ricans in the United States have jobs in health and education.

Carter characteristically avoids pronouns, referring to himself in the third person (e.g. "Carter has a question" rather than, "I have a question"). One day [in 1984], Carter, raised himself up and from that day forward we could all read what Carter writes.
