This is José. He has been living in the US for decades, but a few months ago he was deported to Mexico, leaving behind sons, daughters, grandsons, job, and his whole life there. With only months living in Tijuana, José has been arrested and/or beaten dozens of times by the local police. The day I took this photograph, he was going to try to cross back to US trough a dangerous route in Tecate. It was raining and the night was very cold. I never see him again, and I wonder how he's doin' right now.
