The Death Train - Central Americans travel to the USA
June 4, 2007
In the train station named Lechería, central and south Americans who had ventured north to Mexico City, mainly from Honduras, (but also from Guatemala and El Salvador), jump the trains to take them north. Most of them had been traveling for one or two weeks. The train guards allowed them to travel and pointed out which train would take them to Monterrey where they could find a train to the USA border. Stories are abound of those killed while trying to jump the trains and police brutality.
