Arizona Immigration Law Sends Mexico Into Preparation
Since the implementation of Arizona’s new immigration law, Mexico has been preparing for a surge in the number of deportees they receive. Mexico’s government has stationed more workers at its Phoenix consulate to help detained the immigrants.
At Nogales, Sonora, the state shelter for migrant children has added another 50 beds to the only 100 they already have. “All of us are getting ready for people to come back,” said the director of the shelter.
In the meantime, many of the deported migrants have decided to see how the law is enforced before deciding whether to try illegally crossing back into Arizona again, as the new law was making them think twice about trying to get back. While others say nothing will prevent them from trying to get back, as they have been taken away from entire families, entire lives.
