"We are glad that this child has been returned to her mother but also understand that they now face a very long legal fight ahead of them. We also will continue to fight until every child detained is reunited with their parents. We have yet to see what consequences these separations will have on children in the long run. We will continue to support the families in any way we can. " – Cesar Espinosa Executive Director FIEL
