A group of horsemen make their way across the Suchiate River, which divides western Guatemala from the Mexican state of Chiapas. The crossing, located in the town of Tuxtla Chico, Mexico, is one of the many places along the 700-plus-mile southern Mexican border where residents may cross undetected by border officials. After crossing, the horsemen would pick up sacks of corn and fertilizer, and return to Guatemala, avoiding the payment of cross-border taxes.
