Small stories of migrants who are great humans

By Max Garcia | Project Leader

Draw from a prisioner in Chiapas

In the current socio-political moment in which the issue of migration is at the center of the political agendas of North American countries, mainly by electoral interests. And in particular from this political juncture of marginalization of migrants, which is nothing more than aporophobia (rejection of the poor) disguised as economic reasoning. From the Fray Bartolomé de las Casas Human Rights Center, we have come across the story of a migrant who contrasts with this reality and reflects the enormous capacity for kindness and generosity that is developed in many of them.


One of the most difficult contexts that exist and where human feelings are shown most crudely are the social rehabilitation centers, or prisons. In the border area with Guatemala, in the city of Comitán de Dominguez, is the CERSSO no. 10 and a few months ago it has developed that a group of detainees, mostly indigenous, started a hunger strike from March 15 for the impartial review of their files and the request for justice as they have been self-incriminated under torture. For this action they are being repressed by prison authorities who avoid showing what is happening inside.


In this difficult context, a migrant from Guatemala who is detained in that center has been supporting them. He shows great generosity in showing solidarity with his fellow prisoners and this support is totally disinterested, as these actions have no impact on his case. For this reason, however, this migrant from Guatemala is now receiving threats from prison authorities. Now he too is exposed to a risk of violence on his person.

This is just one story of many who live migrants on their long road to a better future by seeking better living conditions. Share it with you and support from the Fray Bartolomé de las Casas Human Rights Center so that your right to integrity and personal security is guaranteed as established by the rights of persons deprived of liberty in the custody of the Mexican State. This is what we can do and be aware of in this and many other similar cases to prevent the continuation of harassment and aggression against people who are only looking for peace, justice and freedom
