Maria Luisa Cardenas is traveling with her 15 year-old son
Javier Antonio who has Down syndrome. Gangs burnt her house, killed her 2 brothers. She left on
the day of their funeral. Javier is sick. He’s vomiting blood in the camp in
Tijuana. He isn’t getting the right medication.
Frustrated, sick, some hungry others who had just arrived, still exhausted from journey. A couple hundred cops in riot gear for the perfunctory photo op, as corporate news crews pushed and shoved their way to the front for the money shot.
