Stranded and alone in Mexico, deportees miss the country they call homeNOGALES, Mexico — Recent immigration raids and highly publicized deportations following President Trump’s executive orders on border security and immigration enforcement are putting a spotlight on a segment of society that’s long lived in the shadows. Seventy miles south of Tucson and mere steps from the United States border in Nogales, Sonora, a loosely connected community of deportees struggles to survive as strangers in a country that is legally their own but feels nothing like home.
