They must pass through a routine Immigration check in New Mexico.Taylor is nervous when the officer asks who Turtle's parent is. Esperanza says Turtle belongs to her. This foreshadows Esperanza's fondness for Turtle and her healing over Ismene. It also foreshadows Taylor's eventual guardianship of Turtle.
