The 6,000 migrants agolpados in Tijuana suffer the cold in their tents muddy
Caravan to escape the hell of Honduras
Crossing the Mexico border with a coyote for $ 700
Barefoot, and with his daughter on the shoulders was the only way they had on Thursday a member of the Caravan of the Migrant to cross a river of water and mud that ran right at the entrance of the deportivo Benito Juárez in Tijuana, mexico. There, the 6,000 migrants who spend the night waiting to be able to pass the US were exceeded by the heavy rains that fell Thursday, swept away with everything that found to its step, including tents and belongings from those they left on the last October 13, the honduran city of San Pedro Sula in search of their 'american dream'.
The mud it flooded absolutely everything, leaving an apocalyptic landscape in which only had trash, clothes, spin, and mattresses and blankets completely flooded. While, the migrants were trying to recover what little they brought from their countries of origin, at the time that they were trying to fix the small huts that had been built in the sport with sticks and plastic. In no time, he cleared the crowded shelter where thousands of people spend the night outdoors in the weeks since doubling the capacity of the same. Just hours after the rains ripped through the sport and, after several protests by the migrants, opened the second gate, after placing in it a few tables so that they could cross without getting wet.
After becoming virtually uninhabitable, the National Institute of Migration, in coordination with the National Human Rights Commission, invited the migrants to change of place and were moved in several buses to near a thousand people to a new hostel, located in the center of events The Barretal in an area very far from the center, which generated the majority's refusal to move for fear of being isolated. Daisy Rodriguez is one of the migrants who decided to stay in the sport along with four family members sleeping on the floor, where they placed several blankets in the morning were completely wet. Only a few plastics were covered with the heavy rain, so this Friday decided to move to the new hostel. "Yes, we have thought that could happen to something," says this woman from Honduras, who left his country to four children and that he has the intention to seek asylum in the US.
Pascual Martínez is another honduran who is afraid to move for deportivo Benito Juarez as, in its judgment, in the new hostel "we're going to be locked up, which is like a prison," while here, "one may go out to the street to buy something to eat." Despite the fact that members of the National Human Rights Commission tried to convince them that the new place is much better, the majority of migrants did not believe them and preferred to sleep under the rain, as did Fabiola Diaz, who's traveling alone with her two year old son. However, he says that "if all go, we will have to leave wherever you go", taking into account that the flooding of the camp was "something very ugly because it was wet at my house, the child, the mattresses and the blankets". After having endured temperatures of over 40 degrees and now the cold and heavy rains, Diaz is very clear that she does not want to return to Honduras, but that "I want to go to the US and surrender to Migration". "I'm going to get," he concludes.
