THEY CALL IT HOME

This photo story was produced for the Arizona Republic on a squatter community in Nogales, Mexico.

 

The lure of US border plants near the border brought hope and

 jobs to hundreds of Mexicans, but the price was lack of adequate housing.

Here are some images of the proud people

 in one of those settlements.
