and that was not the worst partof their journey.
>> these two routes are verydangerous for migrants.

tijuana, mexico.this is where the cartels
operate.he tells us from a hideout that
hes hiding from threats againsthim for reporting on what
happens to migrants in thesouthern border.
they tell us how the businessworks.
>> theres been an increase ofmigrants being kidnapped.

migrants up to organized crime.>> you cant report a kidnapping
because the federal, state, andlocal authorities are all
compromised.they are all being paid by the
kidnappers.>> once they crossed one of the
bridges between the countries,they fell into the hands of
organized crime.>> they took us to the boss.

are trying to combat thesecrimes against migrants.
they asked for more time to giveus an answer.
but weve heard, and in somecases observed, how these groups
operate on the border.migrants come to mexico alone or
with a guide.they are welcomed by people give
them to cloaked people.they are given the code of a
criminal group.any attempt to become separated
from that group could cost themtheir lives.
even crossing to the unitedstates, that link does not
break.if they are deported, that code
remains valid.they and some taxicab drivers
photograph all of them.once they confirm the code of
the repatriated immigrants, theyare placed in warehouses where
no one can imagine what happens.they are never in the same
warehouse are very long.-- for very long.
