About This Poem

 

"With this poem I weave the stories I have heard on the road as U.S. Poet Laureate and the stories I have heard travelling as a poet since 1970, as well as those of my own family. It is important to awaken to the realities of human beings that undergo heroic and tragic journeys from Mexico and the Américas en route to El Norte as migrant workers in the face of deportation. They follow family trails established even before the 'border' was installed in the early 20th Century."
—Juan Felipe Herrera
