It’s been a year since President Trump's ' Remain in Mexico' policy was introduced requiring migrants seeking asylum to stay in Mexico for the duration of the process.

Univision's Nidia Cavazos interviewed Genesis, az 9-year-old girl who fled gang violence in Honduras. She asked genesis to describe what life is like in the camp.

"Why did we flee our country? Back home, they sell cocaine to children at schools. We have to pay a ‘war tax’. If we do not pay, they will kill us," she says.
