This is Alvero’s second attempt to go to the USA. The first time was four years ago and he was kidnapped in Monterrey, and held for 7 days. His brother paid the ransom. He didn’t get any food or water so he escaped and came back to Honduras and tried again with the Caravan (the first one). He had to leave them because in the caravan there are Maras travelling with them and he was scared so he left the group. Now he is trying to travel with his brother. He fled from Honduras because of violence and his family have no money and he is hoping to look for a job in the US to help his family in Honduras.
