The perilous journey to seek asylum in the United States has tragically taken the lives of two more migrants that were attempting to cross the vast Rio Grande River.
Tania Vanessa Avalos, wife of the Salvadorean migrant who drowned in the Rio Grande River with his daughter during their journey to the United States, arrived in El Salvador on Friday to await the arrival her loved ones' bodies from Mexico.
The young woman, who managed to be rescued from drowning in the Rio Grande River that separates Mexico from the U.S., arrived at the Salvadoran consul in Monterrey, Rafael Rosales, consul general of El Salvador in Monterrey, Mexico, stated this week.
"The decision was made to go by land because it is a much faster procedure," Rosales said and stressed that transfer by road allows a greater "care of the bodies."
Avalos was received at the Oscar Arnulfo Romero Airport in San Luis Talpa by Mauricio Cabrera, the Salvadoran Vice Foreign Minister.
"The Foreign Affairs Ministry has made arrangements to provide health care and psychological support," Cabrera said, adding that "we know that the loss is very large and deep and Mrs. Avalos will need our full attention."
