With just a plastic bag of belongings in his hand, a Mexican man who was deported from the United States Tuesday promptly killed himself, jumping off a bridge in view of the U.S. border.
Sinaloa state native Guadalupe Olivas Valencia, 44, threw himself to his death, authorities said. He had jumped 30 meters (100 feet).
Witnesses said the man was in great distress after being sent back to Mexico for the third time.
The tragedy comes as U.S. President Donald Trump has pledged to deport millions of undocumented migrants living in the United States.
Trump has previously called Mexican migrants criminals and pledged to increase deportation of undocumented immigrants, build a wall along the Mexican border, and ban people from certain majority-Muslim countries from coming into the U.S.
He has blamed high unemployment on immigration.
