Marisol Guer­ra is a farm­work­er from Cal­i­for­nia. She lives in a motel in Wash­ing­ton state dur­ing apple sea­son. I asked her about home.

I was born in Mex­i­co and came when I was 15. Over there, there’s more free­dom — peo­ple stay out in the plaza until 10, 11 at night. Here, you have more respon­si­bil­i­ties, but you can get ahead.
