ABSTRACT
The article reports that more than a million immigrants have been deported from the U.S. over the past five years. Alberto Xicotencatl directs a Catholic-run migrant shelter in Saltillo, Mexico, says deportees are easy targets for organized crime gangs, and several of them roam in border towns in desperate attempts to return to the U.S. Sister Leticia Gutierrez, director of the Scalabrini Mission for Refugees as Migrants, said deportations cause family breakups.
