Only A Dream, adding a face to immigration

leave a comment »

“Only a Dream”  by Josh Davis was first published on the documentary website Reframing Mexico, and is part of the undocumentary project from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This story focuses on a man named Rogelio and the sacrifices that he and countless other Mexican migrants endure when trying to cross the border in search of a better life. While most of the current immigration debate is framed around whether a person is deemed “legal” or “illegal”, less attention seems to be paid to the sacrifices that thousands of migrants make while trying to make the dangerous journey into the U.S. This story provides a human element, a face to that narrative.
