“In the past two weeks, KBI documented 5 separate incidents of migrants CBP expelled to downtown
Nogales, Sonora between 11PM and 1:30AM. In at least 3 of these incidents, those who were expelled were
forced to sleep outside because no hospitality resources were available at that hour. In 4 of those cases,
migrants did not receive any documentation to enter Mexico since Mexico’s National Migration Institute (INM)
was not open. In one case, a man who INM received requested officials allow him to stay at the office for the
night and INM officials refused. He then slept on a bench in downtown Nogales, where he was robbed.”
