Beata Mariana de Jesus Mejia-Mejia sought asylum with her 7-year-old from Guatemala, entering the U.S. on May 19th. Two days later, they were separated from one another, and she was not able to speak to him, nor did she know where he was. She was released from custody on June 15th, and still was not told where he was, though she was allowed to speak to him once.
Do you know what she had to do in order to get her son back? She had to SUE THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. She had to sue the Department of Homeland Security, United States Customs and Immigration Services, the Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services, and Customs and Border Protection.
They were finally reunited this morning at BWI airport in Baltimore, MD. Watch them embrace upon seeing one another after a month apart under the most traumatic emotional conditions a parent and little child can experience.
