USA: Border program 'increases deaths'

From Washington Times/UPI

Officials from the Arizona Border Control initiative claim the voluntary repatriation program helped to reduce the overall number of deaths of migrants crossing the Sonora desert into Arizona from Mexico.

Claudia Smith of the California Rural Assistance League, said there has, in fact, been an increase as smugglers force immigrants into more dangerous routes across the desert to avoid the larger number of border patrol agents now guarding the border area.
