In an exclusive sitdown with The Daily Caller, a group of Afghan migrants tell the story of how UN workers and members from other aid groups assisted their journey to the U.S. southern border; “they gave us a map,” one migrant said.
“The migrants said that before they arrived in Guatemala that aid workers provided them with maps guiding them to Mexico so that they can reach the U.S. southern border. The men were six of 16 Afghans in the detention facility for foreign migrants in Guatemala City,” The Daily Caller reports.
“They give us a map,” one of the Afghan men said. “The map was up to Mexico. There was no United States. But they told how to cross these borders,” one of the Afghan migrants explained.
“But they told us how to go to the U.S. border,” he added.
“Our big problem was Spanish,” another Afghan refugee said. “They didn’t understand English as well. But they try our best and they only tell us that these countries have immigration processes.”
According to The Daily Caller, the migrants paid their way north.
“After Nicaragua, they have an immigration process, they will get $150 from you. We went and we gave a 150 U.S. dollars for immigration and we cross another border up to Honduras. We were told that there was also an immigration process in Honduras,” the first Afghan refugee told the DCNF.
“So we went and we gave our biometrics in all process we have done. And we went move up again in another country,” he added.
