    Nafta blues in a letter home from a displaced maquiladora worker who gets caught smuggling drugs unto San Diego and sent up for a mandatory-minimum sentence in a us prison. Interesting twist on the nafta debate, with an unspoken volume or two about the drug war and the relationship between nationality and class and law and economics. Hints of narco-corrido and Appalachian twang, with a mandolin(?) for accompaniment.
