"Final Journey"

3 of 11

Margarito Garcia holds up the last shirt that his daughter Nicole will ever wear. Garcia was preparing the bodies at a local funeral home for a wake and their eventual journey home. Alberta was Garcia's fiancee and as an undocumented worker he was unable to bury his daughter and Alberta back in Mexico. He simply couldn't take the chance of not getting back into the United States.
