ANTELOPE WELLS, NEW MEXICO - JANUARY 30: A 'Normandy'-style border fence stretches along the U.S.-Mexico border on January 30, 2019 in Antelope Wells, New Mexico. Since October, dozens of large groups of 100 or more migrants have crossed the border into the remote 'Bootheel' region of southwest New Mexico to seek political asylum.

La novela de la escritora mexicana Valeria Luiselli titulada Lost Children Archive presenta una crónica de grandes y pequeñas pérdidas, personales, nacionales, e históricas, al tiempo que sirve como evidencia de los aspectos de la verdad que se cuelan entre las rendijas, incluso en el acto de informar sobre la llegada de inmigrantes de Centroamérica a la frontera del sur.
