Sky News gains exclusive access to young migrants’ journey to the US with smugglers

Young women are embarking on a journey to reach the US border – which for many ends in rape, abuse and forced prostitution.

Sky News has gained exclusive access to follow Karla, a 14-year-old migrant who is under the control of a people smuggler taking her group from Guatemala to Mexico.

The operation is run by a cartel, known as “coyotes”.

Karla says she knows they are risking their lives, but they hope to be able to secure a better future for their families.
