Earlier that year, he paid a smuggler to take him to the Dominican Republic, where he lived for a year and was robbed multiple times. "I'd rather just stay here, even if I'm suffering," he said. "I would rather be here in this shanty house planting and eating beans than go back. They almost killed me."
