Every year, tens of thousands of women, men and children travel through Mexico without legal permission as irregular migrants. More than nine in every ten are Central Americans, mostly from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras or Nicaragua. The vast majority are headed for the U.S. border in the hope of a new life far from the poverty they have left behind. Their journey is one of the most dangerous in the world.
