MEXICO EDITION. An average of 200 people are deported daily from the United States to the state of Tamaulipas, Mexico. The Tamaulipas Institute for Attention to Migrants has moved its offices to the border with Nuevo Laredo and signed agreements of collaboration with bus companies to take the migrants back to their places of origin, and with Catholic shelters that give food and lodging to the deportees. Activists say there have been 100,000 deportees this year so far, and they are calling on Felipe Calderón’s government to put resources toward a Fund for Support of Borders and a Migrant Fund, which now have zero funding and no projected funds on next year’s budget. Martha Elena Ramírez hosts Voz Pública from Mexico City.
