Alfonso Cordova (back row, far right) lived in the U.S. for 30 years and owned an auto repair shop in Los Angeles. Then he was deported to his native El Salvador. His stop at a shelter in Tultitlan, Mexico, is one step closer to his goal of getting back to California to be with his wife, two grown sons and his business. Evidence in Mexico shows that the number of Central Americans migrating north continues unabated and may even be surging. (Keith Dannemiller/Special to The Washington Times)
