Juarez City of Dreams

  • slideshow_large

James Buck

Synopsis

Juarez is situated across the Rio Grand from the US city of El Paso, Texas. Its over one million desperately poor inhabitants have mostly travelled from the Mexican interior to make Juarez the largest border town on earth.

But why do some many people come to this city? To work in the poorly paid US based factories or maquiladora’s as they are locally known; to illegally cross the border, into the US, in search of the American dream; to traffic drugs for the Juarez cartel, one of Mexico’s most powerful drug gangs; Or maybe it’s just to Murder!

This truly will be, your ‘City of Dreams’.
