Summary

A compelling and unprecedented look at life on the other side of the border. Despite the numbers of people crossing over to the U.S., hundreds more remain behind in abject poverty. Urrea worked closely with them and provides a compassionate and candid account of their lives.

Much has been written about the hardships faced by Mexicans who have illegally crossed over into the United States, but until now almost no attention has been paid to the terrible living conditions these people suffer "across the wire" (behind the Mexican border), which forces so many of them to make the dangerous journey to the U.S. 15 photos.
