(Lt. to Rt.) Third generation wood mill workers Rafael Delgado Arellano (cq), and Gilberto Alvarado (cq), talk about the lack of forestry related jobs in Santiago Papasquiaro, Durango in Mexico Thursday May 19, 2005. Severe deforestation and drought have caused a great Migration from Papasquiaro to the United States. All of Delgado's sons have migrated to the Phoenix in search of work. The lack of jobs has also made the town a hub for drug trafficking from the Sierra Madre Occidental. Papasquiaro is one of the many towns inhabited by alleged cop killer Raul Garcia-Gomez's family. Garcia-Gomez is being sought for the murder of Denver Police Detective Donald Young. (MARIA J. AVILA/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) Rafael Delgado Arellano (cq), and Gilberto Alvarado (cq)
