Girl in room with Mother's Day balloon in front of her face

Maria, 7, plays in her great aunt’s house where she now lives after being separated from her mother at the US-Mexico border. She has not seen her mother in almost a year after they crossed the border together in August 2017. Her mother feared for their lives in Guatemala, part of the reason they asked PRI to use only first names and not show Maria’s face.
