Migrants wait months to claim asylum at crowded Reynosa Shelter


This is Senda de Vida, the Path of Life, shelter.
We’re right on the banks of the Rio Grande. There are about 500 people here that are waiting
to go to the United States and request asylum. They want to do it the right way, they say.
They want to go to the bridge and ask an officer with Customs and Border Protection to give
them asylum instead of crossing the river illegally. Some of the people here have been
waiting for months, three months, we’ve heard. We’ve got people from Cuba, people from
Guatemala, Honduras, Cameroon, Haiti, Venezuela. And all of them have the same idea, they want
to go to the United States. Tell me where are you from? And you were kidnapped? Where? Can you show me on your phone what happened? How much money did you have to give
them? A lot of them are afraid of suffering the
same fate that the father and daughter from El Salvador, Oscar and Valeria, what they
experienced. The photo of Oscar and Valeria, of course, went around the world of them lying
face down in the water. But at the same time they’re getting really, really tired of waiting. Another story that we’re hearing from people
is that they’ve been extorted by corrupt officials here in Mexico. And the strong suspicion here
is that it’s all about making money because the people that you see here all represent
a big profit potential for the cartels that move people through here. They’re used to
charging people $1,200 to $1,500 per person. And when people come here and do asylum the
right way they don’t get any money. What do you need and how can people help you?

    This is just beyond ridiculous, and NEEDS to be stopped! NONE of these people NEED asylum in the USA, since the signing of UN migrant/refugee pacts in Dec.2018, ALL migrants/refugees can NOW claim asylum + benefits in 164 participating countries of THEIR choice, INCLUDING Mexico! The USA did NOT sign these pacts and is NOT a participating country!

    This report is just propaganda. Notice, the first & last thing they talk about is the kids so that the UN & the 164 countries in the UN International Migration Pact can say the US is cruel, inhumane, soul less & heartless even though the US is not in the pact thanks to President Trump. The shelter has a lot of pregnant illegal alien women trying to get asylum so they can have their baby born in the US making the baby an anchor baby. Where are the fathers of these babies that will be born soon? These women are getting pregnant by men who just have sex with them & then leave?

    They do more than help refugees. I’ve gone down there for years now to help volunteer and have met the people and Hector. They help people who come off the street in their own cities everyday. They go out and build and restore broken communities. They feed the poor and forgotten in their community.

    Queremos welfare and freebies by claiming false asylum claims even though asylum claims legally should be done in the neighboring country just to not show up for the court date. I'm Hispanic by the way not racist ask the angel moms why I believe in the sovereignty of the nation.

  • Sandra Logan

    Most don't have asylum claims but once they get in many don't show up for court and join the 11 million ILLEGAL ALIENS already hear. We have over a million homeless Americans hundreds of thousands are children where is the outrage for them?

  • Sandra Gayle

    We can not take care of the world. Dr King knew that this kind of thing would not work! That's why the man did what he did for us. His people. Our black American people did not just pack a whole country of our people and expect another country to take us in and give us whatever. This is ridiculous! America is not Haven, this is totally ridiculous.

    Sorry I have no pity for them they didn't need to go back home or the next country from where they originated. No education no work history. Our streets are not made of gold to support foreigners around the world our welfare system is screwed up as it is. We the taxpayers are fed up with having to support all of these illegal immigrants they can't speak English and don't want to learn they expect us to change our laws for their religion for their faith and beliefs. They took the pledge allegiance prayer and respect out of school now they're teaching Sharia law and the new sex classes opens it up to anything and everything this is called the new🌎order. From around💲 the world to 💳Mexico now🎯🇺🇸.
