In a soup kitchen just across the U.S. border, Nicole Davison, high school student, sits down at a table lined with men.
There is a clatter of plates as the guests who were served dinner help clear the dishes. The guests have all been recently deported from the United States.
Davison, 19, learns from one that he had been working in the U.S. for more than 20 years, and that his wife and children are at home in Scottsdale, Ariz.
A Mexican without a U.S. visa or work permit, he is now stuck here, where he knows no one.
“It’s very sad,” said Davison, as she and other members of a group called Kino Teens departed the comedor, the kitchen and dining hall of the Centro de Atencion al Migrante Deportado or Aid Center for Deported Migrants.
