I cant not listen to him, I need my son to feel safe.
Alejandro and I have decided we are going to get out of El salvador. Due to the risks we will only be going. Im sorry.
Best of luck
Valeria and her son Alejandro leave their home everyday to go sell food. They risk their lives by doing this everyday.
I want to go to a quality college to go to with good education.
I want my son to be happy this is why I came all this way.
Valeria heard that statement almost everyday and it was hurting her, her son was scared and nervous and hurt. Valeria and alejandro knew they were risking their lives everyday because their neighborhood was run by el salvadors most feared gangs.
Hi, We are the Asylum Access. We are here to help you get through this difficult time.
I do too. Its not that different from El Salvador though.
After a tearful goodbye, Valeria and Alejandro set off for the travel to their new destination.
I just love this new house the Asylum Access got us.
Valeria and Alejandro went to a local migrant shelter on their way to Mexico. Alejandro told his mom about his dream coming to a new country.
Staying at the migrate shelter, Valeria and Alejandro find the asylum access. Over several days they helped inform rights and contacted authorities for them to be able to go to Mexico.
Valeria and Alejandro moved into their new home. Living in Mexico brought new challenges to them. Refugees face the challenges of getting deported or getting detentation.
