Embodying the deported spectacle in Tijuana. The lived experiences of Mexican deported men who stay in temporary male-exclusive shelters in Tijuana.
By Renato de Almeida Arão Galhardi

Moreover, using recent data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC and University of Syracuse’s statistical migration database, during 2020, approximately 22,102 Mexican men were deported in 2020, having no prior criminal convictions. This is one of the most common characteristics of the deportee. Additionally, 12,717 Mexican men were charged, and consequently deported, for “Illegal Entry” [pertaining to the legal statute INA SEC.101 (a)(43)(O), 8USC1325], alongside 6,158 additional arrests during the fiscal year of 2020 for “Illegal Re-Entry” [pertaining to legal statutes INA SEC.101 (a)(43)(O), 8USC1326].These three categories represent approximately 57% of the most serious crimes deported Mexican nationals committed that led to their deportation; a sentence that probably led many of them to pass through Tijuana. It is important, here, to highlight that these characteristics are non-violent and are exclusively administrative transgressions.......[Citing TRAC data and reports].
