Anna's Story (English)
I entered the U.S. on June 5 and spent 2 days in the “icebox.” They transferred me to the country jail and detained me for 10 days there. Then they transferred me to a detention center called Montana for 9 days and then another one called Otero for 55 days. Then they gave me back my son and transferred us to a detention center together. We have been here for a month and I still have not been able to go to my family. I hope that soon I can be with them. It has not been easy to be separated from my son. Now that we are together I hope that soon we will get out and this will only be a bad memory.
