According to migrationpolicy.org, The Beast Train, or "La Bestia", is a collection of freight trains that "as many as half a million Central American immigrants annually hop aboard", headed to the United States of America. These trains, being built to transport cargo, have no space for passengers, requiring those migrating to ride atop the moving railcars.
