The Other Southern Border

Season 2 | Episode 12

Seeking to better their lives, thousands of immigrants pass through its southern border every day. The journey is never easy. Beatings, sexual assaults, murder, and other encounters with cartels await these immigrants on their journey north. This harsh reality not only occurs on the border that the United States and Mexico share, but also on the border of Mexico and Guatemala.

In our last episode of the semester, we sit down with a Guatemalan migrant who has made this journey north and a Latin American policy expert to talk about this perilous journey, the relationship between police and organized crime and solutions to the humanitarian crisis in Mexico.

Host: Niko Marcich
Researcher: Tyler Hinkle
Guest Interview: Director for Defense Oversight at the Washington Office on Latin America, Adam Isacson and a Guatemalan immigrant
Producer: Andy Carluccio
