Meet "Carlos." That's me, except that's not my real name. I can't tell you what it really is.
I'm only 11, but I lived with my sister and some relatives in Gua- temala for 7 years, while my mom worked for us in Atlanta. She said that one day she would bring us to the U.S. with her.
I miss my mom...
This will all be worth it in the end.
Until one day, robbers came and murdered the relatives I was living with. When the gun shots first went off all I thought was that there were fireworks in my neighborhood.
We had to leave immediately. It cost my mom $11,000 for the smuggler's fee.
Stay low and stay quiet!
But the smuggler ditched us after we crossed the Rio Grande, and Border Control caught us.
I was still happy because I thought we were finally going to get to see our mom...
What are you two doing here alone?
...But we didn't. They shipped us to Texas, then New York.
We don't have enough room here, you'll both be sent to The Children's Village in New York.
Can we see our mom there?
