For Jesus, the man with the generous smile, deportation resembles a sudden death and that is how he wanted to title his story. It is like a death that arrives without expecting it, quickly, and whose impact is fulminating. He narrates the experience he had in the United States and the opportunities to work and live in that country for many years of his life. He also told us how it is difficult to adapt himself to live in a new country, where he was born but had never return until he was violently deported without having committed any crime but looking for better living and working conditions. The insecurity that is living on the Mexican side leads him to describe his life as a labyrinth of thoughts in which he constantly feels lost. He raises the possibility of trying to cross again and is aware that it could mean dying in the attempt but it does not worry him because he feels dead already.
