Casa del Migrante deals with human rights violations toward Central American migrants traveling through Mexico. At Casa del Migrante, Nazareth, a migrant shelter in the border town of Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico, we hear first hand accounts of the migrant's plight. It is through interviews that we learn about the migrants' travels to the border of U.S./Mexico, their encounters with Mexican authorities, and their hopes and dreams for a future in the United States. Central American migrants report of being in constant danger; many report abuses committed by Mexican authorities during their journey.
