We Cannot Remain in Mexico

We cannot remain in Mexico any longer.

We are in a very dangerous city.

Nuevo Laredo.

We fear for our lives.

In addition, we face high levels of racism

against us

from Mexicans.

They do not want us here.

We suffered on the journey from Honduras.

My son and I.

We seek asylum.

We are asking the North American nation for help.

We cannot return to Honduras.

We cannot remain in Mexico.

We only seek a safe place.

We ask the government to respond.

Our only hope . . .

. . . get things resolved.

Soon.

A Mother and Son from Honduras
