“My photograph represents a struggle for immigrants trying to cross through any type of obstacle that faces them to have a better life In the United States. There shouldn’t be suffering being caused for any human being no matter what race and ethnicity they are.They cross the border in that type of age and are being harmed and worried whether they are going to make it through the border or get sent back to their country. We just want a better life.”
