Disappearances of Migrants at the Border Often Unsolved

US / Mexico Border (Tomascastelazo / Wikimedia Commons)

In this tragic and difficult story by NY City Lens, a Morris Heights resident discusses how she lost her mother who was detained at a detention center after trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border in 1997.

It was only last year that Elena Gonzalez got a clue about her mom’s fate because of DNA obtained by Colibrí Center for Human Rights, who had identified her mother’s remains in a law enforcement evidence room.

Gonzalez’s mother was trying to flee domestic violence at the hands of her husband in Mexico, but instead, apparently was detained at the border and how she died, though now confirmed, is still not known.

The article documents other cases of migrant disappearances that have unleashed significant pain, but few answers.

  1. There are ways to come here legally..sorry – no sympathy for any of these people. I don’t believe most of their stories, nor hardships; they want to come here, have a dozen kids, collect welfare and drain our resources. Come here legally, go to work and be an American. Period….what is happening today at the border is a disgrace, Mexico, in plain English – Cowards. They are bought & paid for by the cartels. The wall is a necessity .. .MS13 is rampant .. terrorists can walk right through?! Are you kidding me? Build it and they will go away.
