On patrol with the US Border Patrol
The people in this photo are among 47 illegal immigrants caught by US Border Patrol agents near Sasabe, Arizona, within a two-hour period. They will be searched, documented, sent to Tucson for fingerprinting, then returned to Mexico within eight hours.
Mexico is the leading country of origin for US immigrants. A third of all foreign-born American residents and two-thirds of Hispanic immigrants are Mexican. About one in ten people born in Mexico now lives in the US.
