Amnesty International UK: I Welcome

“I left Honduras because my brother was killed by a gang. They killed him in front of me and my mother. They didn’t end up in prison and they threatened me. I went to central Mexico by riding on top of a freight train. I got pregnant after I was raped by a drug dealer. I turned myself in to the Mexican migration authorities and they sent me back to Honduras, where I gave birth to my son. In March 2016, I came back to Mexico with my sister and another woman. All three of us were raped. I asked for asylum. The lawsuit against my brothers’ murderers is still active. None of them are in prison, probably because they have money.”
