Risking Life and Facing Increased Border Security

(p.61) 2 Crossing Over

This chapter tells the story of how migrants were able to enter the United States – both legally and illegally. Whereas all of the Jamaicans came on airplanes with valid visas, the majority of the Guatemalans entered illegally, making border crossings from Mexico. An analysis of their stories reveals both harrowing journeys as well as how illegal immigration to the United States has gotten more dangerous and costly over time.
