Arnold, Maryland - June 20, 2018: Nico Serrano, 4, plays on his tablet in the bedroom intended for his aunt, Delsy Guadalupe Serrano Torres, at his home in Arnold, Md., Wednesday June 20, 2018. His aunt, who goes by Lupe, and eight-year-old cousin Danny Cortes Serrano, both from Honduras, are were seeking domestic abuse asylum in the United States, but were separated at the U.S. border under the Trump Administration's Zero Tolerance immigration policy. Lupe, is in a detention center in Texas, and Danny is living with a foster family in Manhattan.
Nico’s mother Nila Serrano, a citizen born in Michigan, and her husband, Elnar, a U.S. resident from Honduras, are planning to sponsor Danny. Lupe was awarded a $2500 bond the day Trump signed an executive order reversing the family separation at the border. The sponsorship process, says Nila, has been exhausting.
