JT Diaz lived in Wisconsin most of his life, after his grandparents emigrated to find better jobs. At twenty, he moved to San Antonio to start a family. For over five years, he worked in an immigration holding facility, where he continued to hear the stories that not many will ever hear. JT then joined the Army National Guard, where he was given the opportunity to work with border patrol agents to assist in a task force mission. After seeing and hearing what many of the people endure trying to either gain freedom or provide for their families, he decided to create this fictional story based on real-life events that continue to occur. JT lives in San Antonio with his wife and daughters.
