THE REPATRIATED. Thousands of Mexican émigrés are being forced to repatriate to their homeland as a result of the increasingly punitive laws and border enforcement in the U.S. Recently, U.S. authorities started flying undocumented migrants to Mexico City and Guadalajara under a controversial repatriation program. These mass repatriations have placed new demands for housing, jobs, schools and health services in the migrant home communities. How are these sudden repatriations impacting the mental and physical health of children? What community-based resources are available to these families? How are government agencies responding to ensure a safe repatriation?
