Ice Centre: Honduran Fathers and Reyes Mejia

ice centre: The three fathers were just holding them and hugging them and telling them that everything was fine and that they were never going to be separated again, said immigration lawyer Abril Valdes, according to The Chronicle Herald. One of the fathers, Ever Reyes Mejia, walked out of the ICE centre carrying his beaming son and the boy's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles backpack. In Grand Rapids, Michigan, two boys and a girl who had been in temporary foster care were reunited with their Honduran fathers at a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement centre about three months after they were split up. The boy was secured in a booster seat, and father and son were driven away. The Justice Department said more than 50 children under age 5 could be back in the arms of their parents by the deadline at the end of the day. Lawyers said the fathers were too distraught to speak to the news media. ( As reported in the news.
