Blogs » Your Advocate: an editor's blog » Taking you into the world of an illegal immigrant


We'd like to call your attention Sunday to another installment in our special series called "The Fatal Funnel."

This month's installment provides a rare glimpse into the life of an illegal immigrant. Given our commitment to exhaustively exploring this issue so important to the Crossroads region, we wanted to give you insight into how one immigrant lives openly in the shadows.

We expect some will be startled to find the immigrant willing to be identified and photographed. Some might even criticize us for featuring someone in the country illegally, but the story is not intended to create sympathy for his plight. Rather, the goal is to help people understand a little better the complex issues surrounding illegal immigration in South Texas.

We want you to make up your mind. We'll look forward to hearing what you think Sunday.
