Alvina Jerónimo Pérez doesn’t want to face her neighbors after her unsuccessful journey to live in the U.S. To build another room on her concrete block home, Pérez had to borrow money, which she figured she could make back if she made it to the U.S. But instead she fell victim to a smuggler who promised her a job if she crossed the border with her husband and daughter.
