“I left on January 20th with my two kids, i got to Guatemala with 2000 lempiras (80 USD)… I requested asylum in Mexico, they did not give me permission… I went to Nuevo Laredo, there I tried crossing the bridge but they didn’t let me… I came to Ciudad Juarez… to The Migrant’s House and I’m waiting for my turn, I’m here because of domestic violence, mi husband abused me a lot and I decided… to give everything up … and to come here with my children… now I have new plans, new goals and I’m hoping to God that everything goes my way and to start a new life with my children.”
