Family member of the boy on the border who moved with his tears reveals why he ended up alone and “abandoned to his fate”
“I was able to talk to my nephew today. I asked him what happened, and he told me that he they threw him out with other children, at night, they slept on the road, on the side of the road. When he woke up, he was alone, “Obregón said in an interview provided to Univision Noticias by Nicaraguan journalist Miguel Mendoza.
Obregón attributed the separation to President Joe Biden’s policy of automatically expelling migrant children from the country who arrive at the border accompanied by a parent.
“Migration from the United States is deporting all women with children. They do not let them enter here. So, they throw them to their fate, completely abandoned. If they kill them, whatever happens they don’t care,” Obregón said. .
In the video, Wilton Gutiérrez pleads with a Border Patrol agent crying: “Can you help me? I was coming with a group of people and they dumped me and I don’t know where they are. I came here to ask for help. I come just because. not where I’m going to go, maybe they can rob me, kidnap me or something. I’m scared. “
Obregón said Wilton left Nicaragua with his two sons and Wilton’s mother. The two sons crossed the border without incident and Wilton’s mother remains kidnapped in Mexico.
Obregón is in the process of meeting with Wilton and taking care of his support, but he fears that the process will be too long because there are many children waiting.
