Migrants place themselves under ‘house arrest’ amid escalation of drug violence in Juarez
JUAREZ, Mexico (Border Report) — Migrants waiting for asylum hearings are keeping a low profile in Mexico, as drug gangs terrorized the border city of Juarez for a fourth consecutive day on Friday. “I go from work to my apartment, that’s all. I don’t go to bars or places like that because I don’t want to get caught up in a shooting,” said Edgarti, a Cuban citizen due for an interview with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in the next few days in El Paso.
