Se Habla Inglés: Call Centers in Mexico are Turning Deportees into Telemarketers

Deported Mexicans that have spent a lifetime in the United States are becoming a hot commodity at telemarketing companies in Tijuana. Why? Because of their strong grasp of English. Telemarketing companies actively recruit these English speakers to their call centers to do everything from customer service to collecting debt.

A new video by AJ+ tells the story of deportees like Luis Aguero Andrade, who was deported in 2013.
