All across the Southwest, from the long, arid stretches of southern California

All across the Southwest, from the long, arid stretches of southern California to the badlands of Utah, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico, persistent pockets of poverty have been exacerbated by a messy tangle of bad economic and immigration policy. Pictured here, roadside in Dennehotso, Apache County, New Mexico where the population of just 746 and a 43.2% of those live below the poverty level. Today on MSNBC we launch the latest chapter reporting on the Southwest called Dark Valley: Life in the Shadows from our on going report, The Geography of Poverty: A Journey Through Forgotten America by photographer @mattblack_blackmatt and reporter Trymaine Lee.
