Documentary Looks at Migrants' Rough Journeys through Mexico

EFE: A documentary about the work of the Rev. Alejandro Solalinde on behalf of Central American migrants making the journey through Mexico discusses the extortion rackets, murders, mass kidnappings and massacres that those looking to reach the United States are subjected to.
