Mexican women help migrants to the US

Women provide migrants making dangerous journey to the US with food wrapped in plastic bags.

    For Central American migrants making their way to the US, riding the rails can be the fastest option, but not necessarily the safest. If they're caught, their journey north can end very abruptly with them tossed off the moving trains.

    Yet many still risk their lives boarding freight trains illegally in hopes of a better life abroad.

    A group of Mexican women have been helping them along the dangerous journey, providing them with food wrapped in plastic bags.
