In this episode of the Observer Podcast, we talk with staff writer Melissa del Bosque about her recently-published continuation of her series about Mexican exiles. Her new article, “No Road Home” renitroduces us to the Reyes-Salazar family (who we first met in del Bosque’s “The Deadliest Place In Mexico“) as they watch the Mexican presidential elections on television. What does life in exile mean to them? Will they ever be able to return home? We ask those questions and a few more in this episode.

The Texas Observer depends on support from its members to keep telling stories like the one you are reading now. This fall we're looking for 200 more sustaining members—people like you who can give us as little as $0.99 per month. Your membership means we can continue shedding light on issues that might otherwise go unreported. Can we count on you?
