Inmigrants from Central America in Chiapas, Southern Mexico, before boarding a train in their attempt to reach the US border. They are the poorest persons among the inmigrants, they got to Mexico walking from Honduras, Guatemala or Nicaragua. Once in Mexico they can rest in shelters run by catholic priests before facing the dangerous train travel. In this step, they are often abused by police and gangs that steal the men and rape the women.
