Guatemalan woman reunites with children in New York

July 3, 2018

NEW YORK CITY – Yeni Maricela Gonzalez Garcia (center) stands with Janey Pearl and Democratic Congressman Adriano Espaillat as she speaks with the news media following a visit with her children at the East Harlem Cayuga Centers on July 3, 2018 in New York City.

González García, from Guatemala, drove cross-country to be reunited with her three children, taken from an Arizona immigration facility six weeks ago. González crossed over the U.S. border with her three children on May 19, only two days before they were taken from her as part of President Donald Trump’s controversial zero-tolerance policy of removing immigrant children from their parents after they are detained.

It could be a few more weeks before she can take her children home; whether that home will be in Guatemala or the United Sates is yet to be determined.
