Border crossing

2016_0616_172717002016_0616_173411002016_0616_17254900

This is the informal border crossing between Mexico and Guatemala near Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico. People cross from Guatemala to Mexico to buy inexpensive products because of favorable exchange rates They then return to Guatemala. This trade is condoned by both countries and even though there are checkpoints nearby neither country has an interest in stopping this traffic.

It is only when people fleeing from Guatemala to Mexico move inland that they are stopped at Mexico checkpoints and detained or sent back home. This process of inland checkpoints and detention is known as the “vertical border.” It is designed to prevent migration to the United States long before the migrants reach the northern border of Mexico.

After the Flood

In July 2015 a flash flood wiped out approximately 300 homes along the Mudlick Creek in Johnson County Kentucky. The floods washed away many mobile homes that had been situated alongside the banks of the creek.  The flood occurred during mid day and only four people lost their lives. It could have been much worse.
