Jamie Luna shows a little wallet with memories of his time in the US, including some dollars, identity cards, his Social Security card and photos of his daughters, who are still in the US. Jamie lived in Arizona most of his life but got deported five years ago, and for the last three years has been living in a one-bedroom apartment in the poor and overcrowded borough of Iztapalapa, in the south of Mexico City. He struggled when arriving, as didn't speak Spanish. He worked for a while at a call centre but now is an English teacher at two different companies, combining two full time jobs which are both 6 days a week, leaving him without even a single full day off per week. He is planning to move closer to the US border, to be close to his girlfriend and family.
