From Chicago

Alex Negron fatally overdosed in an abandoned building in February. He was just one of a number of addicts who have been sent by authorities in Puerto Rico to Chicago, ostensibly to get treatment for their addictions.

The reality, according to WBEZ reporter Odette Yousef, is that most end up at unregulated and unlicensed storefront “treatment centers.” Addicts are crowded into dirty rooms where they sleep on mattresses on the floor. There are also allegations that the operators of these treatment centers are stealing addicts IDs, possibly to re-sell.

Clearing the public square

Since the late 1990s, pastors, police, and mayors in Puerto Rico have been sending hundreds of heroin addicts, many of them HIV-positive, to Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, and other cities.

The officials work with mainland ministers, some of whom travel from Philadelphia to the island to recruit addicts, offering drug treatment based on abstinence and prayer.

In more than 120 interviews with people in Puerto Rico, Philadelphia, and elsewhere, the Inquirer has tracked a pattern of exploitation from the Caribbean to North Philadelphia that has increased the numbers of homeless and HIV-positive people in the city, torn apart families, and confounded advocates.

The practice is known as Air Bridge. A few critics call it a form of human trafficking.
