(Ciudad Juarez, Mexico) – More than 30 migrants were killed late last night when a fire swept through an immigration detention center in northern Mexico near the U.S. border. Investigators say the blaze was started by a group that was about to be deported. They apparently set their mattresses on fire in protest. The center is in Ciudad Juarez, which is right across the border from El Paso, Texas. The shelters there are normally packed with migrants who are waiting to be given the green light to enter the U.S.
