However, in Mexico she describes being stopped by armed men who identified themselves as authorities, and witnessing the murder of many of the migrants in her group. She was able to escape and was later intercepted by authorities after walking for days. The Mexican government offered to keep her in state custody until she turned 18. Unable to reunite with her mother in the United States, she chose to return to her country despite the threats against her.
