From 2017 to 2019, Philadelphia-based photographer Ada Trillo returned to her hometown of Ciudad Juárez, Mexico to document the struggles of asylum seekers directly affected by President Donald Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy. In January of 2020, she traveled with a massive caravan for eight days from Honduras through Guatemala and into Mexico, where they were met by the recently established Guardia Nacional composed of former federal, military and naval police.
