34 year-old Marco Solis Leyba was injured as he fell more than twenty feet into a ravine, while trying to avoid being captured by the Nogales Border Patrol. He was deported two days earlier while making his first attempt to cross the Arizona desert, bound for Tucson. He spent two nights at an immigrant shelter in Nogales. "Either I die trying, or I die of hunger in my hometown", said Marco, as he talked to a reporter two days before his second attempt at the border. After failing a second time, he decided to go back to his home and family in Durango, Mexico, with only his injuries to show for his efforts. .Nogales, Sonora-Mexico. 02/13/05                           .
