Railroad Track: Daughter Brittany and Police Raid

railroad track: Honduran migrants Sandra Montoya, her husband Jose Vallecinos and their daughter Brittany rest on the railroad track before a freight train leaves Arriaga, Chiapas state, Mexico, Wednesday, April 24, 2019, according to Toronto Star. The train known as The Beast is once again rumbling through the night loaded with people headed toward the U.S. border after a raid on a migrant caravan threatened to end the practice of massive highway marches through Mexico. But getting there has proved much harder than expected Vallecillo, wife Sandra and 4-year-old daughter Brittany have endured a fruitless wait for visas, spent all their money on food and transportation, and escaped a police raid in which hundreds were arrested and hidden out in the countryside.
