2018-11-16: URGENT!! In AGUA PRIETA, Sonora. They are MAKING A GROUP SIGN THEIR DEPORTATION Papers

“URGENT – #MirgrantCaravan
Addendum – In AGUA PRIETA, Sonora. They are MAKING A GROUP SIGN THEIR DEPORTATION Papers

Dear all: please pass the word, to all your peeps, and let them know, that small groups of 60-or so #asylumseekera between Sonora & Tijuana are struggling, many reports that the Mexican Migra & Federales have been kettling them in their walking routes, last night and early this morning, without anyone witnessing. No human rights groups, caravan accompaniment, or media to document, or help.

A voice recorded massage was sent to me, with these reports, from someone with friends traveling in one of those small groups. (Their phones are dying) I don’t know, how to download and make that recording available here, from my WhatsApp messages. But I wish I could. If anyone knows, please let me know. ASAP. They need help and eyes on the scene.”

“Jessie Sandoval: Hey, so that recording was made by a Honduran Film maker, Katia Lara (I know here sister, Karla Lara), and she was traveling with the First Caravan, with her Compa, Milton, a Honduran Journalist. This morning, she sent me that recording (see comment post above) relating, what her other Compa, (the ones that were being kettled, by the Mexican Migra & Federales, all night) had messaged to her, as it was happening. That was happening, approximately some time, after midnight, and throughout the night.

then she sent me a follow-up message, (see screenshot of WhatsApp message above) that they are now at Agua Prieta, being made to sign deportation papers.

PLEASE ANYONE WHO SPEAKS SPANISH, PLEASE TRANSCRIBE THE AUDIO RECORDING I JUST FILMED WITH MY COMPUTER, INTO ENGLISH. I CAN’T DO IT RIGHT NOW.”
