A man originally from the state of Sinaloa waits for a friend to return to their makeshift refuge in a canyon overlooking the fence that separates Mexico from the United States. The 44-year-old man, who declined to give his name, has lived in the United States for over a decade and was deported in early November of 2012 after his place of employment was raided by immigration officers. He was deported to the state of Tamaulipas. He has tried to return to his home and family in East Los Angeles 14 times since late November but has been caught by the border patrol. He now lives in this makeshift tent and hopes to return to his family in the near future. He works as a day laborer and a carpenter in the city of Tecate whenever he is able to find work. He used to be a carpenter in Los Angeles...Tecate, Baja California, Mexico - February 8, 2013. (Javier Manzano / For The Washington Post via Getty Images).
