A 13-year-old migrant, traveling with his 19-year-old brother (not pictured) from Tapachula to Arriaga, Chiapas. In order to avoid checkpoints migrants walk from Mexico’s southern border to Arriaga where they catch cargo trains North. The roads and fields they pass through are sites of regular attacks by organized crime and migration authorities. MigraZoom was later told that the brothers were extorted on the cargo train and were unable to pay the demanded fee. The older brother was thrown from the train and it is not known what happened to this boy.
