“Over a dozen migrants who have arrived at KBI in the past two weeks have reported being deported
at night, between 10PM and 5AM. A Mexican man who could not sustain himself economically decided to try to cross into the United States for work. After spending several days in the desert and running out of water, he was apprehended by Border Patrol and returned to Nogales, Sonora at 11PM. He arrived at our center the following morning dehydrated. Despite the difficulty, he wished to attempt another crossing the following day, seeing no other option for livelihood.”
