In search of better quality of life for our families, my brother Saul and I decided to go across the border as illegals. Unfortunately, our guide abandoned us in the Arizona desert. With all our faith, we were asking Saint Toribio Romo for protecting us. With his divine help we managed to cross the desert and saved our lives.

Thank you, Saint Jude Thaddeus, for protecting me from the damned immigration police. They are like dogs chasing the immigrants, who, like me, have to move to the country looking for a job. Thing are going very bad now—after that damn discriminating SB 1070 law, derogatory to our rights, was passed here in Arizona. So keep your fucking dollars, and I go back to my dear, beloved Mexico. I dedicate this retablo for all humiliated Mexicans.
