Nogales is located along the Arizona border, about one hour south of Tucson. It used to be a sleepy, little, border town until the US and European companies established factories to take advantage of the cheap labor. People don’t plan on living in Nogales. They just end up there. People come to Nogales from further south with hopes of crossing into the US, but their hopes are seldom realized. One day they wake up and find themselves working in a factory for $1/hr, raising their family in a squatter’s village, and living in a house made of pallets and a dirt floor, without basic utilities like water or electric.
