Overview

La aterradora historia de un viaje sin regreso ...

Cada día, cientos de personas toman incalculables riesgos para cruzar la frontera entre México y Estados Unidos en busca de trabajo y mejores oportunidades de vida. Pero para un grupo de inmigrantes que cruzó la frontera ilegalmente y se subió a un trailer la noche del 13 de mayo del 2003, este sueño se tornó en tragedia.

Aquella noche, al menos 73 personas abordaron la parte de atrás de un camión que debía llevarlos de Harlingen, Texas hasta la ciudad de Houston. Pero el camión nunca llegó a su destino final. A las cuatro horas tuvo que detenerse cerca de la ciudad de Victoria, donde se abrieron las puertas del trailer para encontrar que 17 personas habían muerto por asfixia, deshidratación, y un calor insoportable.

Cuando llegó la policía varios de los sobrevivientes ya habían desaparecido. El terror, el desconcierto y el miedo absoluto los había hecho escapar antes que nadie pudiera hacerles ninguna pregunta. Pero las investigaciones que siguieron pronto encontraron que había una mujer en el mismo centro de esta horrible tragedia: Karla Chávez, una hondureña de 25 años acusada por las autoridades de organizar toda la operación.

Con la pasión y la minuciosidad que lo caracteriza, el periodista Jorge Ramos nos cuenta los detalles de esta desgarradora tragedia, a la vez que busca comprender cómo algo tan inhumano puede suceder en pleno siglo XXI.
