TIJUANA, Mexico The towering black gate opens silently to an alley with walls of corrugated metal. Scrawled in large white letters on one wall is: "The End."
For those deported from the United States, the words are an unnecessary reminder. Nearly every hour of the day, guards unlock this gate that leads back into Mexico, clicking open the padlocks hung on each side, in each nation.

Hang on...I need to go find a box of Kleanex and a violin player.
Had they followed the law in the first place, they wouldn't have lives that got shattered!
If it's any consolation, most of the deportees can't read a word of English.
not our problem.
more gas electricity and water for the U.S.
I think Julie Watson from AP should be shown the same door, forced to spend the rest of her natural life documenting the plight of someone forced our of a country they illegally or figuratively knowingly abetted such. Screw her and screw her illegals.
What is it with people like this author? I honestly don’t understand why they cry the blues over someone who broke the law to get into this country. Do they believe pandering to latinos is progressive?
How does one say “tough tamales” in spanish ?
“Mexicans deported from US face shattered lives “
Stay there then, and your lives won’t be ‘shattered’! I’m told everyday how illegal alien Mexicans have BUILT this country....go do something with that mess down there you are so proud of.
Maybe they can fix their country so it isn’t such a hell hole.
I remember what I was told in my Navy years whenever I bitched:
“We have a hotline for that: Dial 1-800-WAAH.”
“If it’s any consolation, most of the deportees can’t read a word of English. “
Or Spanish, for that matter.
Boo freaking whoo.
Nevermind the credit cards, ss cards, etc. they have stolen from hard working LEGAL American citizens and ruined their lives. Or, the ILLEGL drunk drivers who have murdered innocent LEGAL citizens.
What these illegals have ‘built’ is a legacy of gang rape, gang culture, drunken murderous driving, uninsured driving, uninsured-for-anything period. The pittance they save on costs for building, gardening, cleaning - whatever, is miniscule when compare to the long term cancerous damage they inflict on this country. The dilute our language, our culture and they threaten our children.
Did they learn nothing working in the US? Capitalism? Thrift? Ambition? English? Just what are we teaching these folks?
Is this a rhetorical question?
What a drama queen.
Crap like this is a good reason why nobody cared when AP got blocked.
ilegal vaya a casa
...of the gravy train paid for by others?
Well, why don’t they report on the “shattered life’ of Obama’s brother, who lives in a cardboard hut in Kenya?
This is just typical Asspress style crap. The lying hyenas are so predictable.
"Soy el jeffe, no discuta conmigo." And yeah, it ain't rite, but it's Tex-mex, and that's close enough. I can get a floor or table cleaned and get some onions prepped.
On the other grasping appendage.... they are people that Christians are commanded to pray for. And I do. Pray, that is. Supporting unlawful entry into the country is above my pay-grade.
Mine too ...
I know my heart’s bleeding.
Illegal aliens :2008 as Blcsks : 1964
The law is irrelevnt
Julie Watson and Greg Bull of The Associated Press
"Jules and I have been married for four years but together since we graduated from J-school at CU," said Bull, an award-winning staff photographer for The Associated Press in New York City, where Watson works as an editor on the AP international desk. Before that, the couple, both 34, worked together for the AP in Mexico.
"I stayed and worked for Mesoamerica, a monthly magazine circulated throughout the U.S. that's published by the Institute for Central American Studies out of San Jose, Costa Rica."
After working for two years on the Texas border, Bull and Watson decided to quit their jobs, go to Ecuador and try free-lancing.
"One time we went to find a hot spot for migrants to cross the border. It was way out there in the desert. We went with a group of officers from a police force called Grupo Beta, which is a kind of migrant rescue squad set up by the Mexican government."
"I loved my college days," Watson said. "I participated in the South African protests. I lived in the shantytown we built on campus. Later I worked at Campus Press covering protests. There were so many that they actually made a beat and called it 'protest.' " "
They enjoy the change of pace New York City has provided things such as yoga classes, great restaurants, clubs and parties.
"She (Jules) is currently taking Arabic classes," he said, "so we shall see where we go next .
We would she take the same tone if an illegal killed her family drinking and driving? It happens once a day. Shame on the AP for this tripe..
Don’t let the door hit yer posterior...
Such a horrible, horrible stereotype, of a wonderful country filled with ... Mexicans. She makes it sound like the gates of hell. You'd think the author just doesn't like brown people or something.
I hate this as much as the next Real American but, did you know we have some opportunistic retards here in the USA and they will go to Mexico and bring them back into the States to do jobs and they never return.
Our problem here in the USA beside the law being violated at will is that the world is convinced by being told over and over that the USA is Elderado and every human on the planet wants to come to America.
When they get here they then see the truth! America was not a cake walk for me!
I get so incensed at this garbage sometimes my fingers type faster than my brain can correct typos, etc. What illegals are doing to this country is a travesty - one that I personally consider even more dangerous than terrorism.
I am all for prosecuting citizens of this country who knowingly abet criminal illegals who enter and work in this country. I have nothing against hardworking immigrants who take the time to execute the process legally. When that is done, we are all, then, on equal footing and everyone is subject to the same laws.
Dios se lo feo! Chingato!
Oh my God why did you post this? Just knowing that all these poor illegal aliens are so persecuted by racist Americans makes me want to sell my houses, the boat, my car and use every penny to help all these poor, unfortunate souls!
Oops, maybe not.
I’m sure life is unpleasant for everyone who is stopped from doing whatever they want to do. But, if what you want to do is illegal, you’re going to have to pay the piper. I think they’re very lucky that they only have to go home.
Is that the number for the WAAAAHHHHmbulance?
“Julie Watson and Greg Bull of Associated Press”
Bull...at least the name fits.
Mexico is still your basic noble/serf model of society in which a hundred or so families own everything and everybody else owns nothing. Bring the place under American laws and you’d have to start by hanging every political official and every police and military official above the rank of corporal.
“BORDER” by Chirs Burgard is a documentary that should be seen by every American, but won’t be because it is too controversal and it is true. Distributors will not touch it.
Don’t have a “shattered life”!
The ENTIRE FAMILY should follow those deported!
Go back to Mexico and come back LEGALLY!
Maybe even public school district tax REBATES?
Hospitals will stop closing?
Lower insurance rates for those that don't pay for their insurance?
AH the list goes on and on.
