A Mexican journalist's inspiration, warning

For years, Luis Najera covered the border beat for the respected Mexican newspaper La Reforma. The paper has three editions: one in Mexico City, one in Monterey and one in Guadalajara. Najera wrote from the calamitous Juarez-El Paso area along the border with Texas. He covered migration, the drug wars and human trafficking. His stories would often run on the front page of all three editions of La Reforma.
