U.S. Opioid Problem ‘Being Dumped’ In Tijuana As Deported Addicts ‘Have Nowhere To Go,’ Says Activist
By Valerie Sizelove

According to a Syracuse University study, since 2007, the U.S. has deported 355,000 undocumented individuals to the small city of Tijuana, just over the border. It’s likely that a large number of those individuals experience addiction, especially because a majority of individuals caught are implicated in stolen or illegal drug problems. However, when they are all dumped into an area that is known for ease of availability for drugs, drug addiction problems fester and grow.
