I Am Mirian.

There’s something in my eye, but you can read more about Mirian G. by clicking the link below.

Courtesy of CNN:

I came to the United States on February 20, 2018, to seek political asylum. As I walked across the international bridge, which connects Brownsville, Texas, to Matamoros, Mexico, I felt fear rising in my throat.

I was walking toward an uncertain future. At the same time, I was leaving behind a life of known danger. I had fled my home country of Honduras with my 18-month-old son after government violence threatened our lives. Now, with my baby in my arms, I was approaching a US port of entry to seek refuge.

I knew that the asylum process could take a long time and that it was possible that my son and I would be detained while we waited for a judge to decide our futures.

I could never have imagined they would take him away from me. But soon I discovered how the US immigration system truly works.

It should not be, but obviously, this is who we are now.

    If her life was in danger and she needed asylum, why didn’t she seek political asylum in Mexico when she crossed the border there?

      Are you a fucking idiot?

        Do you not understand the question Ugh at 2:36? She could have applied for asylum at her earliest point in her journey across borders, which actually was probably Guatemala, then Mexico. So if asylum was so important, why not apply at her earliest possible moment, instead of the dangerous and expensive Cartel trek thru Mexico.

        Spain also has fairly lax regulations regarding visas with former South American territories. It would have probably been cheaper, certainly more comfortable and less dangerous, to have booked a nice flight to Spain and declare asylum. That is what I would do if I were an honest person seeking honest asylum from any South American country.

          Violence in Guatemala is as bad or worse than Honduras. Gangs own large parts of Mexico as well.

          The law says that you have to be ON U.S. soil to seek asylum here. So they have to enter the country before they can apply.

          Booked a flight to Spain? Are you fucking kidding me?

          Doofus.

    Maggie Gyllenhaal is another Hollywood genius (not).

    She (and the 30 other Hollywood ‘stars’ that apparently know everything) should accept all ‘asylum’ seekers into their mansions, and pay for all their needs, because they are such a humanitarians lol.

    • Ugh July 13, 2018 at 2:36 pm

      And how do you make the world better, lol troll?

        You could start by growing a brain and not support the deadly and dangerous human smuggling rings run by the Cartel, ‘Ugh’.

        It was made quite clear by Trump during his campaign that dealing with illegal immigration was one of his main goals. Did you not listen?

        Do you not understand the term ‘illegal’?

        You do realize there is such a thing as ‘legal’ immigration do you not?

        • Ugh July 13, 2018 at 9:40 pm

          What these people have been doing is not illegal. You realize that? Enough with this cartel bullshit, you fucking moron. I didn’t vote for trump. He s an idiot and an asshole.

          • Anonymous July 14, 2018 at 1:58 am

            Yeah, no, actually it is illegal. Totally illegal. That is why they are properly termed illegal immigrants. There is nothing stopping any of these people from claiming asylum in Mexico or any other country they could step in to.

            Cartel bullshit? You think these people naturally know the timing and have the lookouts to cross the border and hide in the washes and brush without their coyotes and the cartel?

            Exactly how stupid are you Ugh?

    ================
    I am offended by this statement, this is NOT who we are, this is who the trump administration and his supporters are.

      People who support illegal immigration from South American countries, are supporting a human smuggling business, run by the Mexican Cartels charging 5-10k a head, that kill, rape, or sometimes just abandon the immigrants in the middle of no-where. That is what YOU are supporting.

      • Common sense July 13, 2018 at 2:37 pm

        Less fox news, fool.

        • Anonymous July 13, 2018 at 3:29 pm

          Common sense lololol? That is really your tag name and your response to the actual truth.

          I live next to the border. You obviously don’t, and have zero grasp of the human smuggling operations.

          I have sat on Federal Juries for trials of smugglers and ‘coyotes’, these are NOT good people.

          • Common sense July 13, 2018 at 9:41 pm

            You are so full of shit.

          • Anonymous July 14, 2018 at 1:50 am

            Well sorry ‘common sense’ lol. I have sat in on Federal Juries on Cartel/Coyote smuggling….. No shit at all.

            You know the funny thing, where I live is probably half Hispanic. They already had guilty guilty guilty verdicts in their minds… when I was still questioning the exact language of the law, and if in fact they did break it, even though they were obviously smugglers. You’re a moron. Got it? Moron. And you have no idea what you are talking about from whatever little liberal enclave of a city you live in, in the US. These illegal immigrants, and they are illegal, are treated 100 times better from the US Government compared to the Cartels… And this has been going along quite a while before Trump came into office. But the press could NEVER print such things against Obama. Wake the fuck up.

    The heartfelt “Mirian” letter and its narration has clearly upset many people – for very different reasons. Most of us are still in shock to see that this country could be so callous and mean to poor people seeking a safer and better life for themselves and their children. That has been the dream and the promise of the United States from its beginning. My Irish ancestors who came here during the potato famines in Ireland in the nineteenth century had many of the same fears as the current wave of immigrants fleeing terror and abject poverty in Central America. Those commenters here who have now chosen to berate and condemn people seeking asylum from Central American thuggery and tyranny shame us all as does the Trump administration by doubling down on its cruelty. This country is better than that. We should all remember our family roots in foreign and often dangerous soil.
