Aside from literally sleeping in feces, these people are dodging rats, flash floods and drug addicts. What's worse, the sewer dwellers are constantly under attack by local "death squads," who fire open rounds and pour gasoline into their underground homes, then set them ablaze.

The Democratic socialists of America want this for the USA, but for everyone but themselves. The Democrats/leftists are in the same boat!. I am so sorry you, as a people have to live like this. America has the right to bear arms. Please, come here legally and arm yourself. No death squads!. Just a chance at REAL FREEDOM!!.

2019... Many people still living in sewers. There was a place in downtown called "The Bronx" that was dismateled thanks to the efforts of the mayor Enrique Peñalosa and his Staff. Many outsiders got a better life, others went to look for other sewers; now, with the exodus of Venezuelans to many big and medium size cities in Colombia, the situation has gotten worse. Many foreigners are taking the place of the "Disposables" (which should not be the word for them) and somehow the ones in the sewers are moving a notch up in the social system. (You may see many undocumented Venezuelans in the Public bus system called "Transmilenio". At the bus stops, you may see two guys exiting the doors of a bus an then four get inside the bus to sing or sale candies to get their living. Since I came back to Bogota 6 years ago I haven't heard about any social cleanups or whatsoever but yet safety outside the streets is at high risk any time of the day.

Yeah border Patrol is fucking neura merciful compared to what they go through in Latin America. Why'd you think ppl risk life and limb to come here if it wasn't worth it? That is if they're legit "refugees" (not traffickers or economic refugees).

I was living in poverty untill my 20s when i moved out and found work, i never had money for food in school and i weared the same clothes for years and have the outside toalet and shower in a big plastic umm "bathtub" but damn, i can promise you that this is not even near what those people here are experiencing. I am not believer but if there is a God those people need it. It is shame that country has money for military but cant feed few maunths :( or just allow them to live up on the street atleast in park or something.

Just live in the forest or jungle ffs no need for anyone to live like this!

Steven Hickman probably easier said than done. In the jungles they have all sorts of other issues (animals, mosquitoes, poisonous creatures, etc), plus there're probably other fucked people out there like guerrilla drug cartels and/or unaccessible property. I have to assume they live in the sewers for a reason, and don't just make camps like lots of migrants do out in the safe hills of say, San Diego. Ehh maybe not, and that's just all they know. It is pretty mind boggling.
