Their Mother Deported, Migrant Brothers Struggle to Adjust to Life in the U.S.


(Spanish speaking) – [Male Translator] We were very happy. We were all together
and we lived very happy until my uncles were killed. (Spanish speaking) My mom filed a complaint, but
the killers remained at large and they were threatening
our mother to kill her. We were very scared. (melancholy orchestra and piano music) – When you prosecute the parents for coming in illegally,
which should happen, you have to take the children away. (Spanish speaking) – [Male Translator] We
stayed one day together, then we were told that we
will have to be separated and they will take my mom
to detention for adults and we will be taken to
a shelter for minors. (melancholy orchestra and piano music) – I’m about to call my
client who was deported January of this year,
2019, without her children. (Spanish speaking) She had been separated from her children since September of 2017,
detained all this time, and she’s currently living in hiding. (Spanish speaking) – [Female Translator] At
night, I would dream that we were together and then I would wake up to the reality again that we were not. My children need me and I’m not there. (Spanish speaking) My hope is for them to study. In my country, they couldn’t. They can hardly read,
because we were so scared that we had to continue moving
them from school to school. Now I just hope that they’re
able to finish school. (melancholy orchestra music) – I think the biggest transition issue that these unaccompanied
minors have is a trust issue. They don’t trust people, because they’ve been hurt in the past. Family members have turned on them back in their home countries. They befriend someone
who becomes a gang member who wants to now take their
life if they don’t wanna join. They don’t trust people. Their stories are supposed
to be buried inside. (melancholy orchestra and piano music) (Spanish speaking) – [Male Translator] In my
school, most of the students belong to gangs, so they’re dangerous. It’s scary. Last year, there was a student. He said a bad word to me and I asked him not to use that word and so he went and talked to his friends and they were waiting for
me at the end of school. I told them I didn’t want any problem. He wanted to harm me. I’m not going to school too
much, because I’m scared. (soft piano music) (Spanish speaking) I like my school, but it’s problematic. I’m English level two and they put me in a class with level four. – They’re having a tough transition, living life without their mother. (Spanish speaking) [Male Translator] I miss her hugging me. She would kiss our cheeks
and tell us she loved us. I never realized we would be separated. (Spanish speaking) I have a picture of my mom on my phone and I look at it all day, every day. (melancholy orchestra and piano music)

  1. Shouldn't remove the backbone of the kids…send them back with their mother or parents!it's tough for the kids…That's not right.

  2. Gangs in your country? There all gone there over here known as the MS13, so how are you going to claim Asylum? I see Cockroaches getting in line for benefits. Time to make America great again!

  3. Costa Rica which shares the same colonial history as Honduras (they once used to be part of the same republic) has a high quality of life & a very respectable GDP per capita. How come Hondurans & Guatemalans don't seek asylum there where they share the same language & many other similarities? It's much closer (no more than two days) as opposed to the weeks that migrants risk by coming to the USA.

  4. Illegals are literally parasites no different then welfare queens. Go make Mexico great again and stop stealing from the Americans. I would rather support an American welfare queen then an illegal.
