A 17-month girl was reunited with mother after separation from her asylum-seeking parents. The Honduran toddler is seen crying as she is cradled by her tearful mother, Sindy Flores, at San Francisco International Airport. Juliet was taken into custody by ICE when officers detained her father at the border in December. 'I was devastated, not knowing what to do. Impotent knowing she was somewhere else and not with me.” The 23 year old said was concerned about the impact the separation had had on her daughter and how she was treated while detained. San Francisco psychologist Chandra Ghoshippen: “Not only is she old enough to be affected, she’s more likely to be affected than an older child because her parents are her world; they’re everything she knows.”
Juliet and Ms Flores were reunited on Tuesday following campaigning by Mijente, a grassroots Latin American social justice movement.
