This article from CNN shares the story of a 31-year-old Salvadoran mother in a shelter for deported migrants in the Mexican border city of Reynosa whose 12 and 16 year olds sons have crossed into the United States unaccompanied. "I felt like I was dying," she told CNN. "I didn't want to separate from them." This mother's story "highlights a troubling trend at the border that advocates have criticized as another kind of family separation fueled by US government policies," says the article.
