Mario Córdoba

Mario Córdoba, Kinston, North Carolina.

Mario is 16 and lives with his family in a mobile home painted with the colors of the Mexican flag in Kinston, NC. They arrived in Eastern North Carolina to work in the fields.

All of them are American citizens, but Mario isn’t sure that his parents are going to actually go out and vote on Election Day.

“Many candidates say they are going to give people legal status, then nothing happens,” he says, skeptically.

Mario tiene 16 y vive con su familia en Kinston, NC, en una casa rodante convertida en permenente, pintada con los colores de la bandara mexicana. Llegaron al este de North Carolina para trabajar en el campo.

Todos son ciudadanos estadounidenses, pero Mario no está seguro de que sus padres vayan a ir a votar el 4 de noviembre.

“Muchos [candidatos] dicen que van a dar papeles [a los indocumentados] y nunca hacen nada”, dice, escéptico.
