Maribel is Mexican, from Michoacán. At 25 years old she had to leave her homeland because her husband was kidnapped and her family was threatened. She fled with her mother and children. She has been in Tijuana for a few months looking for a way to enter the United States through a legal Asylum process. She has had to go through difficult times with her children because her children miss their home, their father and their life in Michoacán. Maribel appreciates that she has had the help of shelters that have offered her protection and helped to take her legal case before United States Immigration. She hopes to see her husband soon and to be able to migrate, to give her family security.
