¿QPM? 7: Crossing the US/Mexico border for the 8th time

Amalia got caught by border patrol and in a split second she had to make the decision; give her baby to the coyote and hope he’ll get the infant safe to her relatives in the U.S. or to take her four-month-old back home, to El Salvador.

San Salvador is ranked as one of the top murder capitals of the world - one of the reasons why Amalia was fleeing the city she loved. In this episodio, we talk about the US/Mexico border with an expert and hear a first-hand experience of a mother crossing what’s commonly referred to as ‘no man’s land’.
