父女俩在自己的国家但凡有一点办法,是不会冒着生命危险试图穿越国境的。 阻止非法移民境是应该的。 但是,这样的结局让人揪心。 正如报道中所说,个人的故事是被更大的事件所淹没掉的。 正如有人回复的那样,威慑对绝望的人不起作用,他们被逼到了墙角。 ——— MEXICO CITY — The father and daughter lie face down in the muddy water along the banks of the Rio Grande, her tiny head tucked inside his T-shirt, an arm draped over his neck. The portrait of desperation was captured on Monday by the journalist Julia Le Duc, in the hours after Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez died with his 23-month-old daughter, Valeria, as they tried to cross from Mexico to the United States. The image represents a poignant distillation of the perilous journey migrants face on their passage north to the United States, and the tragic consequences that often go unseen in the loud and caustic debate over border policy. It recalled other powerful and sometimes disturbing photos that have galvanized public attention to the horrors of war and the acute suffering of individual refugees and migrants — personal stories that are often obscured by larger events.
