The Hispanic woman at the center of the self-quarantine controversy is speaking out. In a letter written by her and send to ANR the woman says she is sorry but also dispels a number of untruths against her. She says she is looking to return home after quarantine.
Here is the full letter.
My name is Marielis Horsford, now referred to as “Spanish Girl” by Antigua residents. To start, I would like to apologize for any inconvenience that this situation may have cause you and the residents of Antigua. My place in all of this situation has been mistaken. I am just a visitor that came here with my little brother and sister for a weekend vacation and we have always respected the rules of the island. I never expected that a harmless weekend getaway with my siblings would cause so much harm. Within the past few day I’ve seen how people have accuse me of things that at first didn’t bother me, but that now its getting out of hand.
