When news of family separations at the U.S. border reached the city of Malacatán in Guatemala, Evelyn Becerra was confronted with a difficult choice: Either leave for the United States and risk losing her 2-year-old daughter, Jennifer, at the border, or stay in her home country, where, she says, her husband had threatened to kill her.

“My biggest fear is that they’ll separate me from my daughter,” said Becerra, 21. “She’s all that I have.”

In the end, U.S. President Donald Trump made the decision for her, when he issued an executive order two weeks ago ending the separations, which have generated widespread outrage. Becerra heard the news and decided to leave Guatemala.

The article goes on to state the following:

…on Thursday, Becerra and her daughter sat together underneath a black and white umbrella on the bridge between Brownsville and Matamoros as they waited for immigration officials to let them into the U.S to make their asylum request.  Two days later, after crossing the border, they were on their way to Birmingham, Alabama, where Becerra planned to stay while the government processes her case, according to her brother, Edilberto Becerra, who lives in Birmingham. 

“It’s a dangerous time, and sad — not to know how she is, if she’s eating or if something bad’s happening to her,” Becerra’s brother said in a phone interview last week. “I’m happy that she’s coming.”
