Two men from Oaxaca, southern Mexico, died hugging in the desert of Arizona, United States, after their coyote left them abandoned. This is what the migrants’ father told a newspaper of national circulation, where he added that one of the now deceased began to dehydrate and the other stayed by his side to support him until the last moments of life. The father of the subjects, Facundo Mendoza Nolasco, said that it was the same pollero who revealed that he left the two men in a place in the Arizona desert to continue their journey with other people who sought the ‘American dream’. A week after the tragedy, on June 2, a phone call surprised the subject with the bad news, he was the human trafficker who confessed to abandoning Carlos Enrique and Edgar for not being able to continue the walk to the United States. That the law of life is like this in the desert: if you stay, you stay,” the coyote told the Mexican. Oaxacan migrants were engaged in construction in their home state, where they did not see great opportunities and decided to embark on the road in search of a better life on May 27, the day they left their Tuxtepec community.Edgar, 37, who stayed with his dehydrated brother, left four children without a father; while Carlos Enrique, 23, had two children and his widow is expecting one more.

My name is Juan Pablo Chaidez Aispuro, born in Culiacán, Sinaloa in a small family whose nucleus was originally made up of four people: father, mother and two children. From my early years I showed a taste for watching news and staying informed. I was a graduate of the 2014 – 2018 generation of the degree in Journalism, from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS), the first in that career since its opening. As for the professional experience, I was able to gain apprenticeship during a period of six months in the sports area of the newspaper Noroeste, where I did professional practices. Later, I had the opportunity to spend another six months in the ranks of Radio Sinaloa, particularly in the news program Informativo Puro Sinaloa, of the state government. There I covered local issues, recorded voice for the newscast, contributed content for other broadcasts and had live participation. Since 2020 I am in Debate, a company that opened the doors for me to integrate as a web reporter, and months later to occupy the position of Editor in the site Debate.com.mx.
