ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the illegal migration happening along the U.S.-Mexico border in California. A border open for illegal aliens is also open for drug smugglers who mix with the flow or use their own routes of entry. Also so-called coyotes--people smugglers--often rob, rape, and desert the people they bring across, nicknamed in Mexico pollos, chickens. Many migrants hazard the illegal journey under pressure from a Mexican elite that has no interest in taking care of them. Consequently, the Mexican government encourages mass emigration. The Mexican government has organized a special police force, Grupo Beta, for the protection for migrants as they sneak across the border.
