A Guatemalan man who arrived in Nogales this week after being returned to Mexico under Title 42 reported
that a Border Patrol Agent went through his belongings, took away the pills prescribed to regulate his
diabetes, and threw them in the trash. When the man arrived at our Migrant Aid Center, he had gone
several days without taking his prescribed medication.
