They were poor and young, immigrants from inner Mexican small towns that came to the border with the aspirations to better themselves through the promises of the maquiladora system job market (Dillon A3). One day, as their families waited for them to return home, they simply disappeared. A few weeks later, those same family members were called into the Juárez morgue, where they were shown a black plastic bag with skeletal remains and asked to identify and corroborate if it was in fact their missing daughter, sister, cousin.

To an extent this seems like a perfectly well thought out idea, but to ask a child to sit quietly or remove themselves from the classroom really becomes an act of seclusion. When a person becomes secluded they…
