I was sitting in the dirt near third base on Tuesday afternoon at Little Padres Park in Tijuana when Alfonso Mejia Castillo (below) struck up a conversation with me about the children playing in the infield. I took Spanish for five years in school, but that was before the turn of the century, so we didn’t get really far on that topic. But I was able to find out that he left his home in Honduras two months ago, so I ask him why he left.

“We are fleeing the violence in our country. We are fleeing the corruption. We are fleeing the "maras" [MS-13] and gangs. We are fleeing our government because if we make a single report, they don’t do anything,” explains Alfonso, later transcribed by a translator.

“What the police want is for them to keep killing us. In Mexico too. Even in Mexico we can’t be here. We are hoping that we can touch the heart of the government and that they will help us because we need help. We need everyone’s help. We need [President Trump’s] help. We know that the United States is very powerful. We are hoping that God will let us touch the heart of the United States government and that they will help us.”

Photos by Sean Rayford made Nov. 20-21 at Campo Unidad Bento Juarez in Zona Norte and Playas de Tijuana.
