Detroit deportee adjusts to Mexico’s poverty. ‘You can’t believe it’

GUANAJUATO, MEXICO –  Jose Flores lives with his father in a six-room, concrete house next to the warehouse that his father manages in a town called Acambaro.

Flores feels blessed he and his dad live a decent life with wi-fi and running water, but the community surrounding them brings a pained look to his face. He grew up in Detroit, the poorest big city in the United States. Since he was https://progress-cobap.org/wp-admin/post-new.phpdeported earlier this year, he’s lived among a level of poverty that is difficult to fathom.

On a September afternoon, Flores unlocked the steel gate that separates his neat, little home from what lies beyond. The gate creaked open into a different world, revealing rows of shanty houses patched together with scrap metal. A group of school-age children, some wearing no shoes and one donning a UNICEF T-shirt, were not in school, but trudging down a dirt path trailed by three grungy dogs.
