Crossing the border into the United States requires temporary disappearance, but many who cross never resurface. Anthropologist Jason de León leads a team that searches the desert for the remains of those whose fates will never be known to their families. Meanwhile thousands are preparing for the harrowing journey before them. On his way from Nicaragua, Gustavo stays in a migrant center in Mexico, where he was shot by local police. Anonymous men from Honduras make clever tchotchkes from old beer cans to disguise themselves as street vendors along the way. The mosaic of migrant experience begs us to consider how U.S. policies affect those willing to risk disappearance to get here. -KM
