From left to right, that's David, Ricardo and Jose. They were harassed and rounded up by police at a Red Cross shelter. Jose and David were there because they lost their homes in Pass Christian. They fled for fear of deportation. They would not tell me whether or not they were documented, and I did not press the issue. I was only able to catch up with them at 10 p.m., as they normally work from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and then go for dinner afterwards. To bad my Spanish sucked, as they were a fun bunch of guys.
