Three years ago, as a child, Jesmen Esbel came to the United States from Central America. His journey ended in a detention center and a deportation order in his hands.
This week when he first met her 18 years, her hope of a better life reborn, after receiving from the hands of lawyer Stefan Latorre permanent residence and the possibility to apply for citizenship in five years.
“Met residence through a special shelter there for children who have been abandoned or abused by their parents. We are fatherless 16 years ago and Latorre lawyer said could apply to this benefit, “said Urias, Jesmen older brother.
This benefit relates to the possibility for minors who have been abandoned, abused or victims of neglect by both or one parent, to get a legal status in the United States.
Jesmen remember that the whole process lasted only a year, he always felt fear when he was dating at the court, but at all times had the support of lawyer Latorre. “You feel safe with him. I was always very well, “he said.
Jesmen is the youngest of eight siblings and after the death of his father in Guatemala, older siblings care of the smallest were made. So Urias decided to bring it to the United States in search of a better life.
Today Jesmen attends the High School and its goal is to continue studying, visiting his mother he has not seen since he came here and achieve citizenship when I can apply to it.
