Carmen's Story (English)
When I was walking in Mexico I suffered a lot because there was no food and I crossed the border through the Rio Grande and walked in the desert for half an hour and then on May 4th I entered the “icebox” and on May 11th they took my child and then I was alone in the “icebox” for a week. I was crying when they took my son from my arms and he was crying a lot too because they separated him from me. I went to 7 jails, 8 including here. I was separated from my son for two and a half months until July 26 when they gave him back.
