In the vast migration that is changing the US, a Honduran boy rides a freight through Mexico. Each year thousands of undocumented Central Americans stow away for 1,500 miles on the tops and sides of trains. Some are parents desperate to escape poverty. Many are children in search of a parent who left them behind long ago. Only the brave and the lucky reach their goal.
(Don Bartletti / Los Angeles Times)

Don Bartletti - For his memorable portrayal of how undocumented Central American youths, often facing deadly danger, travel north to the United States.
