Ordinarily, if one is of Mexican heritage and resides in the United States of America, the police pick you up for one reason or another, and before one knows what is happening, your body is in the nation of Mexico. After all, your ancestors were the original people of European ancestry who arrived in what we now term to be the state of Texas. Alondra Luna was in her high school classroom when the police arrived and before she could say, Houston, the screaming girl was on a plane headed for across the border into Mexico. It appears some woman in Mexico claimed to be the mother of this girl, but the girl had never seen the woman. For some reason, they did DNA testing and it was clear the teenager was NOT the daughter of this woman.
The good news is that Alondra is back in Houston with her real mother. The bad news is that she is back in Houston where people walk around with guns and police enjoy halting those of Mexican heritage and if you are not polite, then you might wind up dead. Violence in Mexico vs violence in Houston, which is worse?
