Cuban migrant Ismael Diaz, 46, an agricultural worker, (L) is pictured with Carlos Perez, 45, an economist, as they work on a private property in Paso Canoas on the border with Costa Rica March 22, 2016. "I left Cuba with $2,500 and arrived in Ecuador. From Ecuador to Panama I lost all my money after the Colombian mafia tried to kidnap my wife and they stole all my money," said Diaz, who has been in Panama for seven months. "All I want to do is complete the American Dream." Diaz makes $20 a day and uses the money to pay for medicine for his wife, who has high blood pressure. "I have a wife and 2 children travelling with me," said Perez. "We left Cuba with $2,400, we worked a bit in Ecuador. We have just enough money for the plane tickets for all 4 of us to travel from Panama to Mexico. I work for $20 a day which covers our daily needs. The only thing I want is to reach to Miami to give my children a better future." REUTERS/Carlos Jasso SEARCH "CUBANS STUCK" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "THE WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES

Contestants at the International Gay Rodeo in Arkansas, a Bible Belt state with a same-sex marriage ban on its books, competed in events from barrel racing to bull riding on the soft soil of a fairground that looked like just any small-scale rodeo held throughout the United States. The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule in June whether to strike down bans on gay marriage nationwide. Arkansas has been one of the front-line states in the battle between cultural conservatives and those seeking expanded rights for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

A federal policeman escorts Vicente Carrillo, drug kingpin of the Juarez Cartel, at the hangar belonging to the office of the Attorney's General in Mexico City October 9, 2014. Mexico captured the leader of the once-feared Juarez Cartel in the country's restive north on Thursday, the second drug kingpin to fall in just over a week, a government source said. Carrillo, 51, long-time head of the Juarez Cartel, was a fierce rival of Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman, the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel and the world's most wanted drug boss until his capture in February.

The drug lord and his family left the house as they fled an uprising led by farmers exasperated with organized crime. The Knights Templar have openly defied the government, putting out videos in the media and accusing the vigilantes of being infiltrated by other criminal gangs moving into Michoacan.
