Mexico Deploys A Formidable Deportation Force Near Its Own Southern Border
"Today the Mexican government is hunting migrants without sympathy, even though the exact same thing is happening to Mexicans at the U.S. border," he
says. "The border security measures here in Chiapas are even harsher than on the U.S.-Mexico border."
Mexico's speedy deportations have raised concerns of advocacy groups like the Washington Office on Latin America that potential refugees are being
sent home before they have chances to claim asylum or report crimes committed against them in Mexico.....
"We're putting up something worse than a wall, it's an invisible wall but it exists," he says. "The policies are made as if migrants are invading us,
that they bring violence and crime. Instead of being welcoming, we're being discriminatory."
