How Border Communities Support One Another

Latino Rebels - 03-20


I grew up in the small town of Nogales, Arizona next to Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, also known as Ambos Nogales (or “both Nogales” in Spanish). This was where my parents, preschool teachers at the time, chose to raise their five children. Before my mother died, they lived in the now abandoned teacherage in Lochiel, Arizona, a former port of entry turned ghost town.
