Many women and children take the trip to Central America to find a better job, or in a child’s case their mother. These people often make these sacrificing decisions because they imagine how life would be in the U.S.,they leave their lawless country to seek hope in the U.S. I agree, it surprises me that they take this odyssey trip.

So, it does surprise me. People taking this trip must do what they
