Mexicans Migrating to the US – Road Junky Documentary

Every year tens of thousands of Mexicans and other Central Americans take the road north to the US in hopes of a better life.

They risk police harassment, gang violence, hunger, thirst and cold as they ride the tops of trains and walk across deserts in search of the chance to work in the US and save money to send back to their families and start a new life.

In many ways immigrants are far more hard-core travellers than any backpacker.
