Carlos crossed over three borders to get to the US. He also crossed a river and stayed in a “coyote” house for a month along with thirty others. The coyote released them when they paid up. Carlos arrived first in Texas and then moved to Miami. He’s been in the US for five years but has been in the Krome Detention Center for two weeks.
