The ”Las Hormigas” work takes place at the neighborhood called Puerto Anapra. Its name originates in Asociacion Nacional de Productores Agricolas (National Association of Agricultural Producers) -hence its initials- a group devoted to livestock farming in an arid, desert area on the outskirts of North-East Ciudad Juarez.
SUBURBAN MIGRATING COMMUNITY
50.59% are citizens born at the entity; the rest, almost half, come from other communities and cities in the Mexican republic (Chihuahua, Coahuila, Durango, Zacatecas, Chiapas, Oaxaca, Veracruz, among others).

It has a common border with the states of Texas and New Mexico. The main street is connected with the international Santa Teresa bridge.
