During his 15 years in the US he had married, adopted his wife's two children and had two children with her. He had risen to become a supervisor of a carpentry crew, and had paid taxes throughout. One night, returning after a 14-hour workday, he was pulled over for a broken taillight.
With no papers, he was imprisoned, and eventually sent back to San Pedro Sula. His wife is now a single parent of 4 children. Kelvin has exhausted his savings exploring every legal means to reunite with his family. His best option now is to try another cross-border trip to the north.
A broken taillight. A broken system.
