The Wider Image: U.S. films, hip hop inspire young immigrants' 'American dream'
Anyi Loan Mejia (2nd R), 22, from Honduras and (L-R) Damaris Alejandra Tejeda, 15, Nelson Reniery Ruiz Maradiaga, and Jairo David Veliz, part of a caravan of thousands traveling from Central America en route to the United States, pose in front of the border wall between the U.S. and Mexico in Tijuana, Mexico, November 23, 2018. Loan Mejia said she dreamed of New York City's bright lights and skyscrapers, that she had seen in films. She said she believed "you can walk there without danger ... and that I could have things there I couldn't in Honduras, like a good job, wage and house, healthcare."
