My Story

credible fear testimony

My Story

Each good person

we have our story.

Why we must leave our country.

*

My own…and my daughter’s:

Primarily

I migrated here

For fear of my daughter.

*

In my country

The truth is scary.

The gangs prey upon

our children.

They act in ways

unlawful

and

not

appropriate.

*

When our children

leave

to

go

to

school . . .

We do not know if they will return.

Will they return in the afternoon?

Safe?

We do not know.

I am here to keep my daughter safe.
