Traveling north to Kentucky for his 13th year working under a temporary agricultural work permit, Santiago Garcia crosses the United States-Mexico border into Laredo, Texas. It is the same border where Santiago Garcia crossed illegally, without a permit, his first two times he traveled when he was still a teenager, hidden underneath a van’s floorboards with 12 others. Now, with the security of an H-2A agricultural work permit, Santiago Garcia’s family can rest assured, knowing he can safely cross the border without the risk of being harmed.
