Palma waited expressionlessly until she heard her number called. “Por fin,” she said quietly, by which she meant “At last.” She took a place in line behind two men from Cameroon and in front of a Mexican family from the drug-war-weary state of Guerrero. As a Mexican migration official moved down the line with a drug-sniffing dog on a leash, Palma had the presence of mind to remove a baby medicine dropper from her bag and prod Amber to take a dose of liquid Ibuprofen for her fever.
