The Oklahoman
Traffic to El Paso, Texas, has been so steady in recent weeks that the downtown Oklahoma City Greyhound bus terminal has started running buses there twice a day. Every Christmas, thousands of Hispanics living in the U.S. return to Mexico to visit their families. This year, many say they are not coming back.

Oklahoma’s House Bill 1804, the toughest state immigration enforcement statute in the nation, took effect Nov. 1. It prevents undocumented immigrants from obtaining driver’s licenses and public services. It criminalize s transporting, concealing or harboring them.
There were dozens of people boarding two buses leaving downtown Oklahoma City on Thursday, heading for El Paso. Dozens more, all Hispanic, were getting on a bus on the city’s south side at Rapidos Chihuahua, a transportation company that travels directly to either El Paso or the Mexican cities of Chihuahua City, Juarez or Cuauhtemoc. But most Hispanics traveling this holiday season will likely go by car.
An unbearable distance
