Two Cuban migrants reinvent themselves as security guards in Mexico City.
“They are my friends; their names are Elvis and Dani. Their names are longer, but I forgot them. They, like most of the Cubans I met, went through extreme situations,” Hanel Gamboa, who spread this story of conquest, told the Cuban group in Tapachula.
“They came to rent with me in one of the rentals I had available. But they came with an attitude that I loved. They said we wanted to work. They now have to work in a supply center in CDMX,” he added
After the first job, they started as security guards and thought of becoming Mexican nationals.
“I mean, in a monster like CDMX, they work in the supply center, and from there they got my respect. They have super-great humility. I hold them dear. Today, they started a new job as security guards. The truth is that he pays them well. And they are thinking about staying in CDMX,” he said.
“Validate your studies here. Get a nationality. I’m glad to meet people like that. And if they decide to stay in Mexico, I will be happy to see how they develop and improve, he concluded.
Stories of the conquest of Cuban migrants in Mexico are frequent.
Last January, a Cuban was awaiting his appointment at CBP One. He was excited after finding work in a carpentry and cabinet shop in Mexico.
Ivan Chito Mora Cabrera, who also describes himself in his social networks as an activist for human rights in Cuba, explained in a post on Facebook that he can describe the moment as one of the best days of his life and that he can find work like this in a country where many migrants from the island face difficulties in finding work.
