Rogue Valley Immigrant Works On "Illegal, The Project"
When life is rough, and potentially short, you look for someplace else to live. That's what motivates the people of the "caravans" from Central America.
Laz Ayala, now a Rogue Valley resident, escaped from El Salvador in the trunk of a car many years ago. He's turning his attention back to his journey for "Illegal, The Project," an effort to push for understanding and immigration reform.
One of Ayala's goals is to turn the focus from the people who come across the border to the people who hire them, often outside the law. Laz Ayala visits to add details to his story and his project.
