Okay, okay.

Hey, Will!
Cut him off!

At the tone,
please record your message.
Hey! What the hell did I just say?
Line it up!
And, there's another set
on the other side.
We keep them separated
by age and by gender.
Everybody goes through
a screening process...
to determine who their consulate is.
As you can see, we're
overpopulated and understaffed...
but we're kind of used to that
at this point.
We do our best to take care
of everybody in the same way.
He had a phone call yesterday.
Every new arrival is given
a phone call.
Miss, I told you it's illegal...
for you to approach
these kids for comment.
We need to move along.
Next, I'll show you where they eat
and where the phone room is.
- Manuel Fernandez...
- Is not available.
- Manuel Fernandez...
- Is not...
- That's enough.
- Sorry.
That's it. That's it.
Everybody out. Let's go.
I need you gone. Move it.
- Manuel Fernandez...
- Is not available.
At the tone,
please record your message.
Perla speaking.
Hey... No, hey! You.
Hey, no!
Come on.
Hey, we're not done yet.
We're not done yet.
Come on.
No big deal.
Come on, come on.
I don't have time for this shit!
Come on!
Come here, you...
Come on. It's not that big a deal.
Come on! Take this thing off.
Back in your showers.
This is going to be a problem.
Hey, stop!
Come here! Get over here!
Come here!
Which one of you
little bastards lit a fire?
Who did this? Who did it?
In there? He's in there?
Get him!
Let's go.
Oscar Fernandez.
Oscar Fernandez?
Let's go.
Wait, what is this?
This is his notice
to appear in court.
And these... these are the forms
to apply for asylum.
Oscar's belongings.
How is he su...
He is now in the custody of
Mr. Fernandez and free to go.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Fuck me.
We got one of the relatives
at the courthouse.
- This morning.
- Shit.
Your Honor, on behalf of my client...
I'd just like to thank you
very much for your time today...
and for seeing us in a timely manner.
Case number 264-499-826,
you are dismissed.
File number 264-499-838.
Again, file number 264-499-838.
Oscar Fernandez.
Oscar Fernandez, correct?
Let's proceed.
File number 264-499-838...
is it true that your name
is Oscar Fernandez?
Yes, my name is Oscar Fernandez.
Just answer the questions
with yes or no, please.
Do you understand?
- Yes.
- Yes.
Are you prepared
and willing to proceed...
with this hearing without counsel?
- Yes.
- Yes.
The court notes that
the respondent has chosen...
to proceed, thereby waiving
their right to counsel.
Oscar Fernandez,
you are now under oath.
First, are there any documents
that you wish to present...
to the court here
to support your case?
- Yes.
- Yes.
Thank you.
Is there anything
the government wishes to enter?
No, Your Honor.
Oscar, is it true that
you were born in Honduras...
and that you are not a citizen
of the United States?
- Yes.
- Yes.
Is it true that you illegally entered
the United States...
on May 10th of this year?
- Yes.
- You reported that you had an uncle.
Manuel Fernandez.
You are currently in his custody.
Is that correct?
- Yes.
- Noted. Let's proceed, Oscar.
Why did you choose to enter
the country illegally?
Honduras is very dangerous.
Why is it dangerous?
- Bad people.
- When you say "bad people"...
am I to infer criminal gangs?
Can we make a note
that the defendant nods?
You have to answer
the questions yes or no.
- Yes.
- So your fear of these gangs...
is the reason you think
you should be allowed...
to stay in the United States.
- Yes.
- Did they ever threaten you?
They put a gun to my head...
and they told me...
that I had to join the gang
or they would kill me.
Noted. And did you join the gang?
- Yes.
- Yes.
And did you subsequently take part
in any criminal activity?
They forced me.
What type of criminal activities...
did you witness during
your time with the gang, Oscar?
- Several things.
- What things specifically?
They would steal things.
Did you see or participate
in any acts of violence?
Please answer the question.
I saw how they shot a boy.
You witnessed the gang murder a boy?
They don't care.
They shot a boy from my school.
They left him there
laying in the street.
His family couldn't even
take him that day.
They just left him there
in the street.
And where were you
when they shot this boy?
Oscar, did you participate
in any way in the death of this boy?
Did they force you
to do something, Oscar?
I will ask you one more time
to answer the question.
Answer the question!
Put your earphones
back on immediately.
Put your headphones back on now.
Oscar, answer the question, please.
Oscar, I understand why you're afraid
to go back to Honduras...
and why you came here.
But tragically, gang violence
is very widespread...
throughout your country.
I cannot give you asylum
in the United States.
But since you're under
the supervision...
of Manuel Fernandez...
you will receive
notification by mail.
Okay, okay.
Fuck me.
Fuck me.
No, no.
