ABSTRACT
This article focuses on El Alberto, Mexico, which is being sapped of all its men by the lure of U.S. jobs across the border. As a solution, the locals set up the "caminata nocturna" (nocturnal hike), which simulates an illegal-border crossing. For $14, visitors join in a two-hour run for the border with patrol guards in hot pursuit. The locals hope this will discourage emigration and create jobs.
