>> They're gonna be gone fast.>> Despite President Trump's promise to boost border security and deport millions of illegal immigrants. Many of these migrants are still determined to enter the United States. They've been dropped off here by government migration agents at the privately owned San Juan Bosco migrant shelter in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico.
Where they can have a hot meal and a bed to sleep in. Some have been deported from the US but others are trying to cross the border for the first time. Like Evar Hernandez from El Salvador. He is only 14-years-old but has made the journey all by himself.
And says he's not worried about the new American president.>>
But there are also those who have come to escape extreme gang violence in their country. This family from Honduras with three small children did not want to be shown on camera for fear of being seen by people they say want to kill them.
] who runs the shelter says there will always be people trying to cross the border looking for a better life.
On a typical day, US Border Patrol apprehends about 30 to 40 illegal immigrants in Nogales. Marcos Cordova is one of them. He sent out on January 18th two days before President Trump's inauguration. Hoping to reach his uncle in Portland, Oregon. Before he was detained, he told us he walked for five days through the desert.
