When Christopher was two months old, his father brought him from Guadalajara to California, USA. He grew up not knowing his mother and sister, he only knew that they existed but never had the opportunity to come to Perla Tapatia to look for them.
“All I know is that my father took me and that was it. I think he stole me from my mother and I had no contact with anyone and I just met my father,” said Christopher Alexis González Ledezma, a young man wants to meet his mother and sister.
On August 23, Christopher was deported after 36 years in the United States. He was traveling from California to Texas in search of a better job when he was arrested by immigration agents.
“I was looking for work and I got there. I don’t remember the city, but I lived in California and went to Texas to look for work,” he commented.
“When they stopped me, I had nothing to show him that I was a citizen, nor any documents, and from there they arrested me for trial,” he said.
The US government moved him to Matamoros, Tamaulipas and there the Mexican government helped him reach Guadalajara.
Christopher knows he has to start over. It hurts him that he can no longer see his three children, ages 13, 11 and 9, but in the midst of the storm, what he wants most now is to find his mother and sister.
“To meet them, to see who they are, what happened and why they let me go with my father,” he said.
What are Christopher’s mother and sister called?
The only information Christopher has about his relatives are their first names, his mother’s name is Silvia Elizabeth Ledezma Montealegre and his sister is Nubia Lizeth González Ledezma, who could be around 40 years old.
If you know someone with this name, you can contact the animal shelter “Casa del Migrante Scalabrini, Aldea Arcoiris” where Christopher is staying.
