TIJUANA- It is a flood of emotions that makes the decision to request political asylum in the United States, which is reflected in the movement of migrants, because the acceptance of that confirmation email means the possibility of changing life.
“Happy and with a new hope, the calm because we are fleeing because of the dangerous results and we are waiting for a new beginning elsewhere, with my children, it was worth the wait,” 20 Laura told Telemundo.
And it happened that in a few days the number of daily appointments went from 200 to almost 300, with three additional ones, as indicated by Enrique Lucero Vázquez, director of the Municipal Migrant Office.
“The CPB authorities have just told us that there will be an increase of 300. Many people already have these appointments in the new season, which is at 8 pm and this increase is very significant, it helps a lot,” he said.
For migrants, not giving up and seeking help when needed are the keys to achieving it.
“I came three times four times, because I received orders that I did not understand at the time and then, then the blessed God accepted me, and here I am now,” Laura added.
Next June 7 will be a crucial day for at least two families from the state of Michoacán.
Maria del Carmen Torres of Conception also received confirmation of her appointment.
“And I go in the application and what is scheduled, I put it well and blessed God who is now, but if someone is working because it was the first time that the photo did not take you and that he took you and that there was no space for people, the truth, I was going to return, recalled Torres Conception.
But the luck was not the same for everyone, because many families continue to try, hoping to open spaces.
“Well, it must be most important to me that I will have security and without this, you say, a bandit! if that comes to you, because it is the illusion of each person”, commented Andrea the Mexican migrant.
According to the care of migrants, from January to date, more than 24,000 people have entered the United States of America to carry out their tests, and they do not rule that the number of daily appointments will increase again.
