"I do not advise anyone to take this path and these dangerous methods to come to the United States. It's real suicide; migrants are left to their own devices. In some countries, people are killed for nothing and the smugglers are real sadists, rapists. All the women are raped. Let no one in Somalia, Ghana, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Egypt, Sierra Leone and Nigeria give money to their child to try this adventure. In 2016, the so-called "African Route" was reinforced. It all stemmed from Brazil's openness to African immigrants. It is easy for young people to get a visa to Brazil from where migrants then embark on a journey by foot, dugout or bus, 11 thousand kilometers and 11 South and Central American countries to get to the U.S.-Mexico border. They face a journey fraught with danger due to the presence of armed gangs, drug traffickers and exploiters for whom human life is worthless. To get to what they see as the Eldorado, they must cross the Amazon rainforest, the border with Colombia and countries in Central America. A journey that can take months; Once at the U.S. border, migrants try to sneak across. Few make it and, those few, are often arrested. Volunteer associations that support migrants help them connect with parants and friends living in the United States or with churches and religious groups that help them with their asylum claims. " Speaks Mamunga Afa Diallo one of the managers of Tabernacle African Caribbean Refugee. Few are color who manage to enter the country lawfully. Most migrants apply for illicit services and facilitate the human trafficking route. It is mainly young migrants from "black Africa" who rely totally in the hands of these evil traffickers. Driven by civil wars, extreme poverty and the "American dream," these people pay the traffickers dearly for their "services." One estimate of the value of risky travel is 25,000USD per person. Usually, the desperate migrants are crammed into containers of cargo ships that leave mainly from Nigeria. It is a long journey, at a minimum surreal, these poor people are forced to stay weeks inside containers and not all of them make it out alive. The ships' favorite destination most of the time is Brazil, thanks in part to the networks of organizations dedicated to human trafficking and the great corruption in the country, the ships loaded with immigrants manage to arrive at their destination without any problems. The migrants will pass each time into the hands of different organizations that always run the same traffic. The most common trafficking is the Mexican one. Illegals are driven by traffickers from Brazil to Mexico, passing through most countries in South America. Often alternating endless walks with a few small buses. Once they arrive in the city of Colima, they are crammed back into other ships, freighters or fishing boats that will take them to the coast of the United States. And the "American Dream" will thus be shattered by harsh reality. Those who have not been able to pay for their journey will have to pay back in one way or another to the African traffickers, who often have branching gangs in the territory where the illegal immigrants will go to reside. And that is how these poor desperate people will fall inside the circle of crime. Undocumented and without a dwelling to be able to pay their tormentors, they will be forced to commit crimes such as drug dealing, robbery, theft, swindling, prostitution, or they will be used as laborers for heavy labor, obviously without a contract of any kind. Most will fall into the clutches of this criminal network, as their safety and also that of relatives residing in Africa is at stake. This phenomenon is also present in the state of Los Santos. in the area adjacent to the Strawbarry Avenue station there is a small community of Africans, mainly Somalis. Under the bridge in front of the station is a homeless encampment, which is also home to many illegal immigrants who have lost their dreams and fallen into street life, consisting of; drugs, violence and social marginalization. The station in particular is a place that has become quite dangerous in recent times. Fights, stabbings, robberies and drug dealing are the order of the day. But behind this malaise is a better organized criminal network, which by exploiting these poor people forced by necessity to delinquency, profits immensely. Little is known about who is behind this criminal organization since there is an omertà dictated by the terror of bloody consequences for those who get out of line.
