In 2017, mother and son Leticia and Yovany traveled from Guatemala and crossed the Rio Grande to seek asylum in the United States. Soon after, they were detained and separated. Speaking to Catherine Rampell of The Washington Post, Leticia and Yovany describe the trauma of such separation, something her son likened to “being a flower without water” and call on the U.S. government and the American public to redress the harm done to them and countless other families.
