Images of Central American immigration through Mexico. Immigrants from Central America bound for the U.S. travel on one of the most dangerous routes in the northern hemisphere, risking life and limb, crossing from Guatemala on a raft, walking nearly 150 miles, before boarding freight trains headed north.
  • Landscapes on the Coronado National Memorial, Park Service land adjacent to the US-Mexico border...Scenes from the US-Mexico Border between Douglas and Nogales, Arizona.  The high, arid landscape dividing these two frontier towns serves as a major portal for undocumented immigrants as well as a thoroughfare for human and drug trafficking.  The Bush administration approved 2.7 billion dollars for the construction of a fence along the 2000 mile border area.  The fence is not contiguous and, at many points, shows obvious signs that it serves only as a hurdle not as a roadblock.  The Obama administration has yet to decide whether it will complete construction of the fence which, even according to its mandate, will not bridge the entire border, rather covering urban and high-traffic areas.  .

  • Dismembered immigrants, mostly those wounded by train-related accidents or gang violence along the immigration route, eat at the Buen Pastor Shelter in Tapachula, Mexico...The Buen Pastor shelter sits on the outskirts of Tapachula, Mexico.  Turning down a dirt road from the main thoroughfare, the scent of burning trash fills the car.  Dust covers the wide leafed tropical vegetation lining the road, which becomes more pastoral after passing the smoldering trash.  Turning right, the car comes to a stop on the gravel parking lot of Doña Olga Sanchez's brightly colored green and white shelter for immigrants injured and mutilated on their respective journeys north.  Most of the immigrants have been injured by the train after ending up beneath tons of roaring steel slicing its way along the tempered metal track.  A few have been assaulted, cut with machetes by organized gangs reputed for their indiscriminate violence.  ..Sanchez began working with injured immigrants after surviving a bout with cancer.  Initially she ran the shelter from the patio area of her small house in central Tapachula before acquiring enough private donations to construct a more suitable building.  Constructed and maintained by the very immigrants it serves, Sanchez brings a message of hope to those who have had theirs dashed by the same monster they were exploiting in their northward attempt.
