Perla Trevizo moved to Texas from Juarez, Mexico, when she was 8. She grew up on the Texas-Mexico border. But she never considered covering immigration until she moved to another country and saw what was happening on another border. Trevizo, now a border reporter for the Arizona Daily Star, was living in Madrid, Spain, and getting her master's degree in news agency journalism.
"I started to hear stories about Moroccan youth who migrated on their own to Spain, but once they turned 18 all of the protection they had as minors was gone," Trevizo said.
