Latin American narrative journalism plays a role of denunciation and resistance to the phenomenon of migration in Mexico as a place of origin-transit-destination of migrants. The chronicler’s word breaks the silence and the lies to say the perverse reality that reflects the validity of the perverse, the annihilation of the human condition under the appearance of institutionalised normality. The analysis of some chronicles by Marcela Turati and Oscar Martínez offers two different perspectives, Mexican and Central American, and a single intention: a writing that seeks to explain and make sense of the migrant’s condition through the instrument of the word.
