As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Child Who Has Become Face of Crisis Was Never Separated from her Mother

A child whose photo has become an emblem of the family separation crisis at the border was in fact never apart from her mother, according to the Daily Mail. What’s more, she was, essentially, stolen from her father and taken on a journey he considered dangerous.

The Daily Mail writes:

Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, 32, said that he had not heard from his wife Sandra, 32, who was with his two-year-old daughter Yanela Denise, for nearly three weeks until he saw the image of them being apprehended in Texas.

In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Hernandez, who lives in Puerto Cortes, Honduras, says that he was told yesterday that his wife and child are being detained at a family residential center in Texas but are together and are doing ‘fine.’

‘You can imagine how I felt when I saw that photo of my daughter. It broke my heart. It’s difficult as a father to see that, but I know now that they are not in danger. They are safer now than when they were making that journey to the border,’ he said.

Denis said his wife and daughter were never separated by border control agents and remain together.

The photo is heartbreaking, but it simply depicts the child’s reaction during the detention of her and her mother.

I wonder if this will screw up the photographer’s no-doubt upcoming Pulitzer.

That didn’t stop the supposedly objective MSM newsmagazine Time from using it to editorialize.

President Trump Friday morning tweeted that Democrats were peddling “phony stories of sadness and grief.”

  1. After I read about this from Breitbart and others there are several things that struck me.

    1. She paid a coyote $6,000 to get her to the US, 40 to 50% of Americans do not even have $10,000 to their name,

    2. She left her husband and 3 other children in Honduras. He had a job and was content there.

    3. She had been deported once before in 2013.

    4. A person posted the photo on Facebook and raised $17-$20 million.

    One problem with open borders is it makes it easy for people to come and not stay in their own country and make it better there.

  2. Sad thing is the Progressives/Libs will not bat an eye at all of this and it will continue. I personally just don’t understand the mindset of anyone that thinks ILLEGAL immigration is O.K.

  3. Very few are saying illegal immigration is OK. But separating kids from families is very disturbing and not what we stand for as a country. Majority of the Americans disagree with this child separation policy, so its no wonder that Trump quickly backtracked

    What is more disturbing is justification by Sessions by misusing sacred passage from Romans 13. He forgot to mention the preface to it “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

    • “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

      Alright, tell me who is evil then;
      A nation following the law, or, lawless individuals threatening the safety of innocent citizens.

    • When the police arrest your neighborhood meth dealer, should we send their kids to jail with them? When a burglar is arrested, and a child is in the home, should the child go along for the ride?
      No they shouldn’t. The child is taken into protective custody. If a relative turns up, the child is released to the relative. This is no different.
      “We” stand for freedom for our citizens while welcoming those that wish to join our noble experiment in self government. Those that wish to join by breaking our laws from the start deserve to lose the ability to join us. We are a welcoming people to those that obey our basic tenets and rules…
      As for quoting scripture, I’m no expert. I do recall Christian teachings to obey man’s law and rendering unto Caesar that which is Caesars…

    • what is fitting is how the news media use false narratives and don’t fact check their stories. And America does stand for separating families of criminals all the time.

      This mother chose to leave her family so that she could go the usa. She had already been turned away before.

      Would suggest you read the passage before the one you selectively posted. What America feeds the people and house them… even when they break into our land without coming in the the country.

      Selective use of scripture by pastors to be used for their political agendas ..

      so sad…

      • Today’s American church is little more than an national pacifist, philanthropic organization in the name of Christian works at the expense of God ordained man-power against the perverse mascufeminists that run the show.
