the Rio Grande, the River of Death, from San Ygnacio, Texas
|The image was drawn
on linoleum on the Rio Grande River bank, two blocks from my San Ygnacio
home. During this time with many undocumented persons, including refugees
fleeing the war in Central America, were crossing the river, an occasional
body would be found floating in the river. The ones found near San Ygnacio
were buried in a paupers section of the cemetery.
On the right side of the print, Michael Tracy is lying on the riverbank, with Henry Estrada, his partner, and myself standing at his side. Fishermen are in their boats in the river. Armed fighters from Central America are crossing in the middle of the print.
