I. First Borders
Why have so many Hondurans taken to the US-bound migrant route? What are the communities they are leaving behind like? What does the first stage of displacement look like?
II. Seeking Shelter Amidst Beasts
I visited the shelters and train yards of the southern Mexican state of Chiapas and spoke with newly crossed Central American migrants in Tapachula and Arriaga.
III. Not My America: The Border
I accompanied one of the many border militias of the Rio Grande Valley on one of their nightly patrols as they looked for 'illegals.'
IV. I Had No Choice: The Diaspora
I visited communities in the Northeastern United States, speaking both to newly arrived migrants and long term residents.
VI. To Return & Turn Around
The final chapter looks at migrants who were unable to fulfill their American Dream and their attempts to reintegrate after being deported.
