Introduction:

Knocked off by a tree branch, Guatemalan refugee Elvira Lopez fell off the train "La Bestia" (The Beast) on her way from the southern Mexican border to the United States in 2013. The incident cost her right leg as well as having to spend several months at the "Jesus El Buen Pastor" shelter in Tapachula, Mexico, before continuing her trip. Elvira is one of the more-than-half-a-million Central American refugees that travel annually on top of freight trains across the 2,400 km that separate the Guatemalan border from the United States (c.f. Dominguez 2014). The journey is not only dangerous because of the risk of falling off the train, Mexican criminal gangs constantly attack, rape, and kill many of the Central American refugees that cross through their controlled territories. "[..] based on accounts from victims and witnesses, the CNDH [Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission] documented 214 cases of mass kidnapping [of Central Americans] from April to September 2010, involving a total of 11,333 people" (BBC 2011). If they are able to go all the way to the U.S. border, their next challenge is to cross the heavilysecured fences and to evade American border patrols.
