A Mother Protecting Her Son

A Mother Protecting Her Son

A Mother Protecting Her Son

I am a mother who wants

to protect



The gangs threaten him to death.

First they molested him.


They robbed him 2 times.


They demanded extortion money.


They demanded he must

leave school

get a tattoo

join the street gang.

To my son they threatened

to harm me


to kill me

his mother.

I am a single mother.

My husband beat me.

I left him.

Already he has made his life with another person.

We have no support.

The gangs know this.

They threatened us.

The gangs are called:

“The Twins”


We made the decision to see shelter

In the United States.

A friend of mine lives here.

She will receive us

To save my son

To save me.

We left our country in emergency.

We cannot return.

We have much fear.
