Description

Mexican citizens are surrounded by violence and drugs in their native country. Many are seeking to become US citizens and find the only way is to gain political asylum or going through business channels. The US government is denying many asylum requests because they believe the law doesn't fully apply to victims of Mexican organized crime. Further, many of these Mexican citizens have been sent back to Mexico, where a number of them face torture and even death.
