    6:15 AM - 16 Jun 2018 from McAllen, TX

    The top photo has been used by the media and activists to pummel the Trump administration for its decision to start strictly enforcing immigration laws at the border by prosecuting all illegal border crossers, prompting children to be taken from their parents caught sneaking them in.

    The husband said his wife left him and their three older children for a “better life” in the U.S. He said she was seeking political ayslum but he made no mention of any gangs or threats by the government, just that his wife wanted to live the American Dream. Photographs from Facebook posted by the Mail show a happy mother with her family driving a nice car. However, the husband says his wife left without telling him or giving him the chance to say goodbye to their daughter.



    The father of the Honduran girl who became the face of the family separation crisis has revealed that he still has not been in touch with his wife or daughter but was happy to learn they are safe.

    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.

    He revealed that his wife had previously mentioned her wish to go to the United States for a ‘better future’ but did not tell him nor any of their family members that she was planning to make the trek.

    ‘I didn’t support it. I asked her, why? Why would she want to put our little girl through that? But it was her decision at the end of the day.’

    He said that Sandra had always wanted to experience ‘the American dream’ and hoped to find a good job in the States.

    Denis, who works as a captain at a port on the coast of Puerto Cortes, explained that things back home were fine but not great, and that his wife was seeking political asylum.

    He said that Sandra set out on the 1,800-mile journey with the baby girl on June 3, at 6am, and he has not heard from her since.

    ‘I never got the chance to say goodbye to my daughter and now all I can do is wait’, he said, adding that he hopes they are either granted political asylum or are sent back home.

    …The couple has three other children, son Wesly, 14, and daughters Cindy, 11, and Brianna, six.

    …He said he heard from friends that his wife paid $6,000 for a coyote – a term for someone who smuggles people across the border.

    ‘I wouldn’t risk my life for it. It’s hard to find a good job here and that’s why many people choose to leave. But I thank God that I have a good job here. And I would never risk my life making that journey.’

    End excerpt. Please click this link to read the complete Daily Mail article with more photos.


    The father also spoke to Univision a few days ago:



    Time used the photo for its cover to attack President Trump over enforcing immigration laws.



    Customs and Border Protection issued a statement about the mother, but not the child (privacy) to Buzzfeed:

    “On June 12, 2018, Sandra Maria Sanchez, 32, a previously deported woman from Honduras illegally re-entered the United States,” . She was arrested by agents with U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Border Patrol near Hidalgo, Texas, while traveling with a family member. On June 17, 2018, Sanchez was transferred to ICE custody, and is currently housed at the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, Texas. Her immigration proceedings are ongoing.

    On July 3, 2013, Sanchez was encountered by immigration officials in Hebbronville, Texas. On July 9, 2013, she was transferred to ICE ERO custody. On July 18, 2013, Sanchez was removed to Honduras under expedited removal.”

    Fake News: Iconic Crying Migrant Girl Was Never Separated from Mother, Says Father



    June 21, 2018

    The father of the tearful two-year-old Honduran migrant girl who became the face of the “family separation” news coverage says that his young daughter was never actually separated from her mother when caught by U.S. Border Patrol.

    Instead, he says, his daughter and her mother are together in U.S. custody at “at a family residential center in Texas.”

    Moreover, the mother had been deported from the U.S. in 2013, according to a statement given by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to Buzzfeed on Thursday evening.

    Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, 32, told the UK Daily Mail that his wife Sandra, 32, had taken their daughter, Yanela Denise, on a dangerous journey to the U.S. on June 3 without telling him. They had since been in touch, he said, and he learned the two had been detained together but never separated.

    Yanela Denise became an iconic symbol of opposition to the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy, under which adults who cross the border illegally are prosecuted. As a result, children traveling with migrant adults are often taken to shelters separately until they can be reunited with their parents, a family member, or a sponsor.

    Getty Images photographer John Moore took the famous photograph of Yanela Denise standing on the ground and looking up in tears while a McAllen, Texas, Border Patrol agent searched her mother next to a patrol vehicle.

    The image spread like a California grassfire. Time Magazine used a cutout of the little girl on its recent cover, where she was depicted confronting President Donald Trump.

    Multiple news outlets used the photograph as a symbol of the pain of families being separated by U.S. government officials. A Facebook fundraiser that used the photograph to solicit funds to help reunite families has already raised nearly $20 million, becoming the single largest crowdfunding campaign in the history of the social media platform.

    Getty Images captioned the photograph by indicating that the mother and daughter had been “sent to a processing center for possible separation” (emphasis added).

    Moore told the Washington Post earlier this week that he had assumed they would be separated: “In his head, he weighed the girl’s chances. According to new federal policies, he said, she would be taken from her mother when the van reached its destination. They would not be reunited until their case had wound through the courts, and then likely only to return to the country they had fled.”

    However, Moore did not appear to confirm whether the two had, in fact, been separated.

    Time magazine just released this photo of their new cover.
    It features a young girl who was photographed in a now viral image taken by photographer John Moore of Getty Images. The child was detained, along with her mother, after allegedly crossing the border, illegally.

    Now, Hernandez says that his wife and daughter were never separated by Border Patrol agents and that they remain together.

    Hernandez also told the Daily Mail that he did not support his wife Sandra’s decision to leave their home and travel through dangerous conditions to seek political asylum in the U.S.: “I didn’t support it. I asked her, why? Why would she want to put our little girl through that? But it was her decision at the end of the day.

    “I don’t have any resentment for my wife, but I do think it was irresponsible of her to take the baby with her in her arms because we don’t know what could happen,” he told the Daily Mail.

    He said she had talked about going to the United States for a “better future” but she did not say she had made the decision to take the 1,800-mile trip — paying a “coyote” smuggler $6,000 to take them.

    When Sandra left on her journey with Yanela, she left Hernandez behind with three other children — Wesly (14), Cindy (11), and Brianna (6).

    Though he said she had planned to apply for political asylum, Hernandez did not mention any political persecution that might have justified the claim.

    He also said that he was employed: “I thank God that I have a good job here.”

    Hernandez said that the first news of his wife’s and daughter’s fate came when he saw Moore’s photograph.

    He also told the Daily Mail that officials told him on Wednesday that his wife and child are together in Texas and are “doing fine,” he said.

    In an interview with Univision (in Spanish), Hernandez cried as he described his feelings about the situation:
    (same video as posted above)

    White House correspondent Saagar Enjeti said the interview with the father shows that the family was never separated by government officials, as portrayed by the media. Enjeti observed that his wife came to the U.S. for economic reasons, not fear of violence, and the he was unhappy with her for taking his little girl on very dangerous journey.

    Father of the now famous photo of the little girl crying says his wife/child were never separated at any time by authorities, that his wife was seeking a job (not fleeing violence), and that he is upset w/ her for taking his child on the dangerous journey http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...peaks-out.html

    The ICE statement to Buzzfeed read:

She was arrested by agents with U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Border Patrol near Hidalgo, Texas, while traveling with a family member.

    She comes here for work and a "better life". Not a case for asylum. He wants his wife and child to go home.

    Those 2 need to be loaded on a bus and safely transported back to Honduras.

    100% of these people need to be kept together and returned home.


    WE HAVE A PROCESS TO APPLY FOR WORK PERMIT. GET IN LINE LIKE THE 2 BILLION PEOPLE ON THE PLANET THAT WANT TO COME HERE.

    NO ASYLUM AT OUR PORTS OF ENTRY. FILE THE APPLICATIONS FROM YOUR HOME TOWN.

    SHE WOULD HAVE SAVED HER $6,000 BUCKS PAYING AN COYOTE AND PUTTING HER CHILD THROUGH THIS.

    HER CASE NEEDS TO BE DENIED AND WE NEED TO STOP THIS HUMAN TRAFFICKING!
