Wilkinson​ ​believes​ ​the​ ​people​ ​of​ ​Central​ ​America​ ​face​ ​violence,​ ​crime,​ ​and​ ​poverty​ ​and risk​ ​their​ ​lives​ ​when​ ​coming​ ​to​ ​the​ ​U.S.​ ​Wilkinson​ ​writes,​ ​“Central​ ​Americans​ ​ride​ ​hobo​ ​style northward,​ ​facing​ ​murder,​ ​rape,​ ​extortion,​ ​and​ ​other​ ​dangers.”​ ​The​ ​migration​ ​process​ ​is​ ​a​ ​long journey​ ​about​ ​3000​ ​miles​ ​for​ ​someone​ ​living​ ​in​ ​Honduras.​ ​It​ ​can​ ​take​ ​several​ ​weeks​ ​or​ ​months​ ​to reach​ ​the​ ​border.​ ​Sometimes​ ​people​ ​don't​ ​make​ ​it​ ​all​ ​the​ ​way​ ​and​ ​are​ ​captured​ ​by​ ​Mexican authorities​ ​when​ ​crossing.​ ​Those​ ​who​ ​are​ ​caught​ ​are​ ​put​ ​into​ ​detention​ ​facilities​ ​where​ ​they​ ​are mistreated​ ​and​ ​tortured.​ ​Wilkinson​ ​quotes​ ​Solalinde,​ ​a​ ​roman​ ​catholic​ ​priest,​ ​who​ ​said,​ ​“​ ​The migratory​ ​stations​ ​have​ ​become​ ​maximum​ ​security​ ​prisons​ ​where​ ​migrants​ ​are​ ​treated​ ​like members​ ​of​ ​organized​ ​crime.”​ ​This​ ​backs​ ​up​ ​her​ ​claim​ ​that​ ​Central​ ​Americans’s​ ​journey​ ​to America​ ​is​ ​dangerous​ ​because​ ​migrants​ ​face​ ​troubles​ ​not​ ​only​ ​in​ ​the​ ​U.S.​ ​but​ ​in​ ​other neighboring​ ​countries​ ​as​ ​they​ ​cross​ ​the​ ​borders. Wilkinson's​ ​article​ ​describes​ ​what​ ​the​ ​Central​ ​American​ ​immigrants​ ​face​ ​when​ ​coming​ ​to America,​ ​their​ ​motives,​ ​and​ ​uses​ ​pathos​ ​to​ ​make​ ​the​ ​reader​ ​feel​ ​what​ ​it’s​ ​to​ ​be​ ​a​ ​migrating ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​Munoz​ ​2 central​ ​american.​ ​Her​ ​information​ ​and​ ​stories​ ​put​ ​together​ ​a​ ​moving​ ​piece​ ​that​ ​is​ ​easy​ ​to sympathize​ ​with.​ ​The​ ​whole​ ​situation​ ​with​ ​the​ ​immigration​ ​and​ ​the​ ​reasons​ ​behind​ ​it​ ​are​ ​hard​ ​to hear​ ​about.​ ​We​ ​are​ ​privileged​ ​to​ ​live​ ​in​ ​a​ ​country​ ​where​ ​there​ ​is​ ​more​ ​control,​ ​and​ ​poverty​ ​is much​ ​less​ ​prominent.​ ​Which​ ​is​ ​why​ ​Central​ ​Americans​ ​people​ ​risk​ ​their​ ​lives​ ​to​ ​come​ ​here. ...

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
