    Why do you continue to claim the “two-year-old Honduran asylum seeker” has been separated from her parents when her father says that NEVER happened? And I would also ask how you know the two-year-old is seeking asylum? can the two-year-old explain WHAT asylum actually means? Seems unlikely. You can’t assign intent or desires on someone based on the intent or desires of a relative. But that story is not as riveting.
