The southern state of Chiapas is what migrants call la bestia or “the beast.” It is one of the most dangerous sections of Mexico for migrants. Authority figures can be brutal, Enrique has been robbed here before. The people dislike migrants in this area as well. Enrique wears a cap which reads “No Fear,” he presses on.
