El Diario (Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua)  6/10/09

Julieta Nunez Gonzalez, delegate of the National Migration Institute (“Inami’) said that eight out of every 10 persons, including children, who were repatriated this year by American immigration officials via Ciudad Juarez, were residing in the center or north of the United States and had already settled there. She pointed out that 2009 has been when the largest deportation of persons has taken place of persons who already had some time residing in the neighbor country, compared to those who were caught barely crossing the border. Those who were already settled and were returned to Mexico were employed as day workers, farm laborers, gardeners or construction workers, as well as plumbers, painters, mechanics, waiters and among them housewives stand out.      Nevertheless, they were repatriated to Mexico together with those who had just barely arrived in the United States. From January to May of this year twenty-two thousand 24 persons were repatriated by the United States through Chihuahua, and especially, Ciudad Juarez. Of that number 18 thousand 85 had already made their lives in that country, while the rest, 3 thousand 939 had just crossed the border with the intention of going further into the neighbor country. According to “Inami” statistics, a fifth of the fellow countrymen are from Chihuahua, the rest from Durango, Guanajuato, Veracruz, Michoacán and to a lesser extent from just about all parts of the country.
