The media has used an image of a little girl crying at the border as the foundation for slamming the border crisis. They are playing on emotions. A normal tactic of the left. But there is one problem. The little girl in the picture was never separated from her mother and was taken by the mother against the father’s wishes.

According to The Daily Mail:

In an exclusive interview with, Hernandez, who lives in Puerto Cortes, Honduras, says that he was told on Wednesday by a Honduran official in the US 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 said he heard from friends that his wife paid $6,000 for a coyote – a term for someone who smuggles people across the border. 

ICE has confirmed that the mother was deported back to Honduras from the United States in 2013. The father has totally blown up the medias’ narrative about the events happening at the border. We have a mother who paid a smuggler $6000 while abandoning her 3 other children. In the process putting her and her daughters lives at risk.
