Caught Between Two Worlds

Nuevas Fronteras from Selket Guzman on Vimeo.

Lincho is an undocumented worker who has lived in North Carolina for six years. Three years ago he was joined by his wife, and they now have a daughter together. He goes out every morning to a local gas station with hopes of finding a day’s work. He says he is constantly living in fear that he may be deported and separated from his family.

Though it means sacrificing higher wages and a better education for his daughter, Lincho recently decided to return to Mexico in order to ensure that his family can stay together. “It is more difficult, but I’d rather be together with my family…one cannot tell one’s heart what to feel.”
