In this July 12, 2014, photo, Central American migrants ride a freight train during their journey toward the U.S.-Mexico border in Ixtepec, Mexico. The last time so few people were arrested at the country’s borders was 1973, when the Border Patrol recorded just fewer than 500,000 arrests. And the volume of people being arrested at the border remains dramatically lower than the all-time high of more than 1.6 people in 2000. (AP Photo/Eduardo Verdugo)

A major U.S. effort to discourage repeated attempts by immigrants to enter the country illegally by flying and busing them into Mexico hundreds of miles away from where they were caught, but government statistics and interviews with migrants in Mexican shelters suggest the dislocation is rarely a deterrent, especially for immigrants with spouses, children and roots in the U.S. (AP Photo/Ross D.

In this Friday, June 20, 2014 photo, Central American migrants use trash bags and cardboard to protect themselves from the rain as they wait atop a stuck freight train, outside Reforma de Pineda, Chiapas state, Mexico. The first leg of the long cross-country train journey, to Ixtepec in Oaxaca, typically takes 12-14 hours. On this occasion, the migrants had to endure alternate exposure to rain, cold, and heat for two full days, as the train suffered a minor derailment in a remote area halfway to Ixtepec.
