Resumen

IZCARA PALACIOS, Simón Pedro. El coyotaje visto desde la mirada de mujeres migrantes centroamericanas. Perf. latinoam. [online]. 2017, vol.25, n.49, pp.77-95. ISSN 0188-7653.  http://dx.doi.org/10.18504/pl2549-004-2017.

This article, based on a qualitative methodology that includes in depth interviews with eighty Central American women who used migrant smugglers to reach the United States, examines her point of view about migrant smuggling. This paper concludes that one-sixth of respondents were deceived by migrant smugglers, and seven women suffered some form of sexual abuse from them, however more than two-thirds of the interviewees expressed a positive opinion towards migrant smugglers. This does not mean that women always trust migrant smugglers, they generally only trust those who were recommended for relatives or friends.

Palabras llave : Coyotaje; migrant smugglers; Central American women; sex abuse; organized crime; immigration authorities; Mexico.
