Beyond the scenes of handcuffed people and crying children that Mario Guevara has documented in covering the increase in immigration-related arrests around Atlanta, one series of images haunts filmmaker Jesse Moss.
These images are the vans used by day laborers that sit empty and abandoned. Their occupants have vanished into “la boca del lobo” (“the wolf’s mouth”), which is the name of the short film that Jesse Moss made about Guevera.
“La boca del lobo” is the phrase one woman used to describe the fate of her husband, who had been arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Mr. Guevara, a reporter for Mundo Hispanico, Atlanta’s largest Spanish-language news organization, covers the immigration beat.
Operating alone, shooting his own video, he has built a large local following and a national reputation for his intrepid reporting.
