For a decade, I've been making monthly trips to the El Paso/Juárez area to document -conditions and help various humanitarian groups. In late 2018 when a flood of migrants appeared along the border, mostly fleeing from violence in Central American countries such as Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, I began working with La Casa del Migrante, the major migrant shelter in Ciudad Juárez, seeking out people on the streets of the city and prowling along the border wall trying to interview Mexican soldiers. What emerged are photographs that document US cruelty toward those fleeing their home countries.
