Summary/Review: Mexican refugees tell their stories. An El Paso Texas lawyer fights for asylum-seekers searching for safety and the recognition that they are the victims of a genocide. The Juarez Valley, a region once known for cotton production, is now nothing more than burned down houses, empty towns, and memories. Carlos Spector, an immigration lawyer born in El Paso, TX, fights to obtain political asylum for Mexicans fleeing from violence. This is the story of Mexican men, women, and children seeking a respite from their tragedies by heading to their neighboring country, the US. It is also a story about the kindness and hope that still exists in people who have gone through hell, and about Carlos Spector's tireless efforts to keep memory alive.
