Migrants protest unjust treatment by marching to the courthouse

On Wednesday, a group of migrants protested cruel treatment by marching from the Segundo Barrio’s Sacred Heart Church to the El Paso County Courthouse.

Majority Of Protesting

The majority of them were protesting the Dec. 27 announcement of the extension of Title 42. Many of them who have been taking refuge at Sacred Heart Church lack the legal documents needed to lawfully depart El Paso.

They have nowhere to go and now run the prospect of being sent to Mexico. Angelo Parra, a Venezuelan, claims that all he wants is to be admitted to the US.

“In order to continue our journey, we need the government’s assistance with the legal process or a permission. We can purchase our tickets, and we have plans. We want to reach our objective; we don’t want to remain on the streets begging. We also don’t want shelter.”

Influx Of Migrants

There are many who oppose the massive influx of migrants that has been entering El Paso, like Sarah Isabel Pantoja, a Panamanian. To be able to study in the United States, she takes a flight to and from El Paso to her native nation.

She does, however, mistrust the motives of individuals who have traveled a great distance.

“My question will be the same: Why the United States if they have the option of staying in any other country in central America?”

Numerous immigrants are still camped out on the streets of the city while they wait to realize their American Dream.
