 La 
Prensa urged the Mexican government to protest even though it was “not easy for a small 
country to dissuade a large country from its objectives, even when the two countries were 
friendly and the larger country was merely enforcing its laws.” Still, La Prensa argued 
that many deportees were being hastily and mistakenly ejected from the U.S. without 
being given time to find their documents.
94
 La Prensa, whose ethos had long been 
Mexico de afuera, or Mexico in exile, now cautioned repatriates to carefully examine any 
Mexican government offer to resettle them in the home country.
95
 In another editorial that 
day, La Prensa told of a Mexican family that had left Los Angeles for Mexico only to 
find that the government had resettled them on land belonging to someone else–and now 
had no place to live.

The Mexican government a few days later sent $1,500 to Nogales and $3,000 to 
Ciudad Juarez to be distributed among the deportees amassing there and announced 
Mexico’s Secretary and Sub-secretary of Industry, Commerce and Labor would come to 
the border to study the situation, La Prensa reported.
97
   
The Express coverage did not track deportations, but it did track border 
enforcement developments, including news reports that did not reflect its editorial view.  
It carried an AP story datelined San Francisco in which the California joint immigration 
committee complained to Congress that the dearth of resources to apprehend illegal 
immigrants made a mockery of immigration law.
98
 The next day the Express followed up 
with an AP story from Washington reporting on Secretary of the Treasury Mellon’s 
recommendation for the creation of a unified border patrol to be placed under Coast 
Guard control.
