A Cuban family is experiencing a dramatic situation after being separated at the southern border of the United States by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents, leaving a mother and young son on the Mexican side.
The Cuban Mariolis Montano 36. was disappointed in the term when his son was forbidden to act under the age for the appointment that they were approaching for this Friday. According to Telemundo 51, her husband passed the deadline last Sunday and remained waiting for the petition with his son.
“It can be written down so he can cross,” the CBP officer is heard saying, exchanging words with the mother and informing her that she can’t make the minor crossing. According to authorities, the only option left for Montano is to cut off her appointment with her son.
The lost woman prayed to the policeman. “I am small and I have nothing left, alone,” said the woman between sobs.
“I know, ma’am, but there is a process we must follow today. “All the minors are to be written,” answered the officer.
The husband of Montani and the father of the minors, Ludovicus Albertus Carvallo, is getting to try his family from the trial. As mentioned, the application to request an appointment does not work properly and is blocked when more than one applicant tries to request an appointment.
“We’re trying to include everyone, but the application doesn’t stop, it stops when you try to include the other person,” Carvallo said. His wife, whose name was confirmed on Friday by the Paso del Norte Port of Entry, announced that she had observed other mothers passing by with minor children without proper authorization.
In addition, she revealed that her family was ready to receive her and take care of her pregnancy. “My family is waiting for me in Miami with all the conditions created for the arrival of the child,” said Carvallo.
Given the severity of the situation, when his mother gave birth to his little sister, Montanus and Carvallon’s son asked his mother to go alone to the arranged meeting, but before leaving the hope of the little one alone, she flatly refused. in the most dangerous city of Juárez.
“It would be best for him that a girl should be born,” he considered his son. “A mother never abandons her children, we leave them together and we leave them together,” said the mother.
Pending a decision by the authorities that would allow the reunification of this family, Montano sent a message to President Joe Biden and the most important official who oversees the immigration process in the government, Alejandro Mayorkas, the secretary of Homeland Security.
“You can’t separate a family. I hope these messages reach Biden and Mayorkas, who is Cuban like me and my son,” prayed the woman, one of the tens of thousands who have been consumed by the pain of the immigration crisis from Cuba. The Stampede pushed thousands of their people to leave the country, in what constituted the largest exodus of Cubans in the history of the United States.
Requests to the authorities of the Department of Homeland Security to seek a speedy resolution of the case have not yet been answered.
On Friday, travelers with nearly a thousand migrants of different countries, from Tapachula in southern Mexico, set off for the United States, which is the first trip to the United States in 2023.
The group is made up of Venezuelans, Ecuadorians, Salvadorans, Hondurans, Guatemalans, Haitians and Cubans. They are moving to the borders of Mexico and the United States despite a measure approved by the Biden administration at the beginning of the year.
In late February, US officials announced a plan to bar asylum-seeking immigrants who cross the border without first seeking the protection of transit countries on their way to the United States.
The measure includes Cuban migrants and will go into effect next May.
