Illegal Immigrant: Reports in Central America Encourage Trek North

KRGV, June 3, 2014

Central Americans say news reports in their countries are encouraging them to make the journey north to the United States.

A mother and child told CHANNEL 5 NEWS that the message being disseminated in their country is, “go to America with your child, you won’t be turned away.”

The woman, Nora Griselda Bercian Diaz, from Guatemala, said she endured threats from the Zetas and extortion from corrupt Mexican police. She eventually crossed the Rio Grande with her 6-year-old Delmi Griselda Paul Bercian by her side.

The woman said she wants a U.S. education for her daughter.


A CHANNEL 5 NEWS crew met the mother and daughter three hours after they crossed the border illegally. They were lost and searching for Border Patrol agents.

“I was planning to go to McAllen then call a friend for her to send me money on the bus,” Bercian Diaz said.

Bercian Diaz said she has no family in the United States. Her hope of staying here relies on her little girl. She said the message in her country is that America’s borders are open to all families.

News reports in Guatemala say mothers and small children are getting bus tickets, Bercian Diaz said.

“I said, ‘I need to act right now, because this will end and my girl won’t have a future,'” Bercian Diaz said.

Bercian Diaz said she has a haunting past. She was deported a year ago. Her fear is that the deportation will break up her family.

“I’m afraid,” the woman said crying.

“I’m afraid of being sent back to my country. I don’t have any family in the United States, I just have friends,” she said.


Bercian Diaz said they found corruption in the Mexican government.

“They were asking for 500 pesos, 600 pesos. The federals took that money from us,” she said.

She said the Mexican federal police and immigration officers asked for money to “turn the other way.”

“The immigration officers took 1,500 pesos,” Bercian Diaz said.

She said the threat of rape and kidnapping haunted them every day.


Agents eventually arrived and ushered the mother and daughter into a van. The agents didn’t have time to turn around before another group came walking up the same road.

    I with the aliens in this article were as imaginary as these aliens.

      I like Loki from the Avengers. We need a Loki in charge for a bit I think.

  • Puggg

    It’s all the fault of all our politicians running their drooly snoots about kids and dreamers and finding a place for squatters.

  • Publius Pompilius Quitus

    The United States, my country, has its own problems without adding the problems of poor people from the third world. We are overpopulated, polluted, and have an over encumbered welfare state, a corrupt political elite, a crumbling infrastructure, and an increasingly small middle class. And the presence of the third world intensifies all of those problems.

    • SentryattheGate

      Plus all the billions $$$$ in foreign aid we have given, and debts forgiven, to Thurd Worlders!

      PPQ it must be a living hell to be in a school where you must tow the marxist line or face severe consequences. Transfer!!! May I suggest Liberty U, Bob Jones U. Hampden-Sydney, Hillsdale, Patrick Henry, Brigham Young, to name a few. You don’t have to do that for four years. Good luck.

    “The woman said she wants a U.S. education for her daughter.”

    And section 8 housing, and welfare, and WIC, and EBT, and an SBA loan, and Obamacare, and free tuition, etc. ad nausem.

    • Kenner

      That ‘education’ will teach her to hate whites.

    • Who Me?

      And an “After-School Program” where her child can stay after school, free of charge, be fed supper and go home ready for bed, so mama doesn’t have to take care of the kid all day. (Oh, by the way, she won’t get WIC for a 6 year old kid, it stops at 3 years old, or used to anyway.)

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        Women can continue to get WIC for their children up until the child is 5, now. So yes, she still won’t get it if her kid is 6. She will get normal food stamps, though.

    • ElComadreja

      It’s people like her and her daughter that have made an American education worthless. Most of today’s college students couldn’t match wits with the high school graduates of 1975 or earlier.

  • I want, I want, I want … gimme, gimme, gimme.
    What they don’t want is what dumbo Bush talked about all the time–freedom, self-responsibility, limited government. What they want is my effing lifestyle that I worked my a** off for 30 years to achieve, given to them immediately upon arrival. Screw them. They need to crawl into a hole and die. All of them.

    • Ahnenerbe ᛟ

      I’ll dig the hole and pour lime on them

      • Kenner

        Put de coconut in de lime. Jus’ sayin’.

  • Jesse James

    Amerika is open to all families of the world except whites.

    Too bad for her, and a disaster for us.

    SEND THEM BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      We need to militarize the American border and treat all third world “immigrants,” legal or illegal, as hostile foreign invaders. Only through the decolonization of this once great nation will we be able to take it back.

  • JohnEngelman

    It is not our fault that those people cannot create civilized communities. They will import their barbarism here if they are able to.

    • Dave West

      All these mestizos, illegal or not, think that America is some magical place where anyone from anywhere can succeed. This can only happen until the white taxpayer gravy-train dries up and America’s third world reality sets in. The frustrating part is that once this happens no one will ever place the blame on the fact that America has become less white. The reason will be unregulated capitalism, past racism, poor education, etc.

      • JohnEngelman

        It is unregulated capitalism. The capitalists want low wage workers. They are getting them.

  • Who Me?

    We need to send down a crew of men to put up signs, paint billboards, pass out flyers on the street, nail them to telephone poles, scatter leaflets from helicopters, getting out the message that they are NOT wanted in the United States. Of course, then our politicians would have to quit putting out the bait, turning them back at the border, deporting them instead of giving them a free trip to Phoenix, and most of all–NO welfare, section 8, food stamps, free education, etc. A peanut-butter sandwich and a bus ride back to the border the first time. A good old-fashioned public flogging the second time. The third time they disappear so there is no fourth attempt. Harsh? Yes but apparently necessary till they finally get it through their 75-85 IQ brains the the US is a sovereign nation and it is NOT their right to come squat here and take what we so generously legislated supposedly for our OWN citizens who fall upon hard times. We do not want them here and we will not tolerate them, and if they keep pushing, we may have to do something as citizen groups to discourage their invasion.

    The New York Times APRIL 26, 2010

    Democrats are torn individually (a state I share). On one side, they favor helping those in need, which inclines them to look sympathetically on immigrants; plus they’re relatively open to a multicultural, multiracial society. I know that when I look at today’s Mexicans and Central Americans, they seem to me fundamentally the same as my grandparents seeking a better life in America.

    On the other side, however, open immigration can’t coexist with a strong social safety net; if you’re going to assure health care and a decent income to everyone, you can’t make that offer global.

    So Democrats have mixed feelings about immigration; in fact, it’s an agonizing issue.

    Republicans, on the other hand, either love immigration or hate it. The business-friendly wing of the party likes inexpensive workers (and would really enjoy a huge guest-worker program that would both provide such workers and ensure that they can neither vote nor, in practice, unionize).

      Excellent article, John.

        Thanks. Paul Krugman is my favorite columnist. He won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 2008.

    Keep the pressure on your reps in congress. Giving 11 – 30 million (nobody knows for sure) criminal lawbreakers legalization pure insanity. Plus, they could sponsor their relatives; that would bring the total up to about 50 million aliens in our midst. Of course, these new citizens will vote for the vile democrats and their socialist giveaways. Most of them will be unskilled, uneducated, low IQ etc. Stop this outrageous bill now. Don’t sit on the sidelines.You are not wasting your time. The American people don’t want this bill. You have to do all you can do to stem the third world assault:
    – Contact your 2 US Senators and rep in congress.
    – after biz hours, leave a message on your DC rep’s voicemail. All US Senators have multiple offices so it would be a good idea to hit all of the. Remember, be civil and don’t threaten
    – go to NUMBERSUSA then go to the take action button. You will be able to send faxes to your 2 US Senators and congressional for free. (I also gave a $50 donation).
    – use Business Reply envelopes to state your opposition to America’s insane immigration policies and the proposed amnesty. Don’t give the parties any money.
    – join an immigration group like FAIR. Strength thru numbers!
    – go to the RNC & DNC sites to email them.
    – Use the media: call a talk radio program; write a letter to your local paper. If the media outlet is liberal, then talk about economic impact of massive third world immigration.

      Amen! I keep sending those NumbersUSA faxes.

    Why stop at allowing illegals from Central America into this country? Why not the whole fing world? Let’s just allow ANYBODY who wants to come here, to just come! I mean, let’s face it, obama is an income redistributer, and we know he wants to do it globally. Well, it would be MUCH more efficient to just have EVERYBODY in the world to move here. Oh, wait, that might cause the Earth to tip over, right, Mr. Johnson? Where does this end? Where? Oops, I meant to say donde. We is gonna haff to start over, cuz this crap ain’t working no mo. Yeah, that’s where I see this country in fifty years, a language that has degenerated into a combination of spanglish with a heaping spoonful of ebonics, a dash of Urdu, and a pinch of arabic. And, to make it all the more thrilling:Everybody hates everybody else. Unless, unless, miscegenation is kicked into super nova gear!. Diversity? We doan need no stinkin diversity. We be like all tan with semi nappy black hair, and brown eyes wit hardly no eyelids and sheeit. Constetooshun? Ah hell nah, uhhuh, that be gone, no mo a dat honkey ass sheeit. Dis country be righteous, yo, si?

    Countries can now get rid of their trash populations of mental defects, perverts, criminals, and retardates, just like Castro did to Carter with the Mariel boat lift. That’s how we got Scarface, remember? Get ready Boobus Americanus, American Sheeple and Pimple, this is coming to your town soon.

    Don’t forget to vote for the Democrats in the next election. They’re on the lookout for you.

    still no word from TX gov. goodhair on this issue. he’s off preening for the GOP convention currently held in Ft. Worth.. eyeroll….. you’d think he’d call in the Natl. Guard if there any left stateside……. :/

    he’s not too hip to illegal invasion, even though he is into crony capitalism which supports it… maybe this non-acknowledgement is a further black eye to Fed… but still… his constituency will be the ones to ‘absorb’ this mess.. they ones who are aware of it are not happy about it, even if to offer a black to the Fed.

    Paul Krugman’s commie jew grandparents should have in Russia or wherever they came from. Jews established a communist paradise in Russia and E Europe which was run by and for Jews. But as soon as they established their communist nirvana they ran from it. The capitalists were all for unlimited immigration to keep wages at starvation level until the 1920’s when Krugman’s commie grandparents and their co religionists started bombing wall st.

    During the depression California’s agri business posted flyers all over the Dust Bowl states telling the farmers about good wages and opportunity in California as farm laborers. At the same time, the State of California posted flyers in the same areas telling the truth: there were not enough jobs even for crop pickers and state and local welfare dept funds were so low welfare would not be given out for new arrivals. At the time county welfare departments required one year of verified residency to qualify for what little welfare was available.
    Now we greet them with food and diapers. I wonder how many of the 300 pd brown bowling balls are pregnant, or will be next week?
