December 11, 2023 (1 min read)

Dec 10, 2023 - "One hundred and forty-eight migrants died in Border Patrol’s El Paso Sector in the 12 months through Sept. 30, soaring from six migrant deaths recorded six years ago, according to Border Patrol records. The sector includes all of New Mexico. The fatalities don’t include the more than 70 migrants who died across the border in Juárez."

Aaron A. Bedoya, El Paso Times, Dec. 8, 2023 - "Families torn apart, dreams crushed — the somber reality of migrant deaths at the El Paso, Juárez border. El Paso Times' yearlong investigation exposes the challenges faced by migrants and the lack of infrastructure to address this growing crisis."

Tim Archuleta, El Paso Times, Dec. 7, 2023 - "The series, the culmination of a year of reporting, tells the human story of the sons, daughters, wives and husbands who died hoping to find a new life in the United States, and of the families and loved ones left behind."
