A record number of undocumented immigrants were deported from the United States last year. Most of the 410,000 migrants forced out of the country were Mexican.

Many deportees ended up displaced in places like Tijuana, a city on Mexico's border with the US. Some have been forced to find shelter in tunnels.
Al Jazeera's Adam Raney reports from Tijuana.
