About the project

This project is born from the need that I have seen as a journalist covering the immigration issue for almost 18 years, facing the families of migrants who do not know what happened to their loved ones after crossing the international border into the United States. 

According to a report published by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, 850 migrants lost their lives on the US-Mexico border in 2022.

Some of these migrants were found and identified. However, there are hundreds of unidentified migrants in forensic offices.

Migration in the human being starts from creation, people move from one place to another according to their needs.

In the American continent, most of the migration was received by the United States years ago due to its economic stability, the strength of the dollar with respect to other currencies, with the passage of time the reason for these migrations changed as mentioned by John xx in his Harvest of Empire: A Story of Latinos in America
