What would make you leave your home and family and friends? And head to a country whose president hates you? Especially in a time of Covid 19, what would possibly motivate you to take this extreme step? In her new book No Option But North, The Migrant World and the Perilous Path Across the Border, author Kelsey Freeman explains why Trump’s cruel disincentives and the realities of likely suffering ahead are insufficient to stop the journey and squash the hope for the simple ability to live one’s life. Despite the new level of ferocity by Mexican kidnappers and US authorities, along with the threat of Covid 19, until conditions are improved, refugees will come. They want what our ancestors came for.
