"I have to turn myself in to leave together": Salvadoran girls abandoned at the Mexican border will be deported with their mother


The three sisters were found by the Mexican authorities on an island in the Rio Grande after being abandoned by coyotes. According to her mother, one of them was abused in El Salvador. The father of the youngest of them requests that they be granted asylum in the United States.

The mother of the three Salvadoran girls found alone in a border area of ​​the Rio Grande confirmed this Monday that she was notified by Mexican immigration that she and her daughters will be deported back to El Salvador.

The girls, aged 18 months and 9 and 6 years old, were abandoned by coyotes at the southern border and rescued last Thursday by the Mexican authorities.

Julia Angulo, the mother of the minors, assured that she felt "frustration, sadness, pain" after receiving the deportation order for her and her daughters Claudia Alessandra, Ashley and Amy.

“They tricked me”: mother of the three migrant girls rescued in the Rio Grande says that coyotes charged her $9,000 to cross them into the US.

"I have to go to immigration to turn myself in so we can leave together

," she told Noticias Telemundo.

Angulo will reunite with the minors when he turns himself in.

"I was excited that the Lord would touch someone's heart to open a door and get to the United States with my daughters, but unfortunately it couldn't," said the woman with tears in her eyes.

Angulo says that she was "deceived" by coyotes in the Piedras Negras sector, to whom she paid $9,000, according to what she told Telemundo News.

They assured him that they were going to cross the minors and that they would meet again when they arrived in the United States.

However, they left them to their fate.

The woman says that she came to "make things right" and turn herself in to immigration.

The coyotes told her that going separately from the girls was the best alternative.

For Angulo, returning to El Salvador was not an option since one of his daughters suffered "an abuse" in that country, he said.

The father of the two oldest girls, Ashley and Amy, was killed in Mexico four years ago "when he wanted to get to the United States," according to the woman.

"When they saw that he was not there, they began to threaten me,"

she said.

Noticias Telemundo also spoke exclusively with the father of the youngest of the girls, who also advocates for a future outside of El Salvador for the family.

"Look for an asylum that can provide the girls and her too to have a better life," said the man on condition of anonymity, adding that the four

are "inseparable."

The older girls' paternal grandparents are in Austin, Texas, and beg to be allowed to reunite with the younger girls and their mother.

“The girls at this moment are suffering because they are far from their mother,” said the grandmother in a call with Noticias Telemundo on Sunday.

Angulo seeks legal help to be able to fight his case before the deportation order is executed against him.

Meanwhile, she asks the president, Joe Biden, to help her.

If she could make one request, it would be "that my daughters can be with her family in the United States," she said.
