Edith is a young woman that regularly travelled to the United States with a work permit or a tourist visa with a 10 year validity. Edith, a professional, was detained during a layover in Houston without being explained the reason. There were migration officials who humiliated the detainees or that laughed at them, but also others who were understanding. In five years, she will not be able to enter the United States, where her boyfriend and her friends live. She has not been hired at companies were she has applied for work since they’ve required a valid visa.
