“I had a little bit of money but the DPI took it from me. I was traveling in a bus in Matamoros and the DPI got on the bus and asked everyone for their money. “Give us all the money you have or you will die here” They had big guns. I gave them everything I had. After that I didn’t have any more money.”

“I don’t have any family here. My family is there. They are not safe. I am the only one who is here, learning and safe.”

“It took me about two months to get here. Maybe more. I was traveling with a coyote but then he gave me to a different one and then he gave me to a different one and some more.”
