The U.S. deported this mother to Guatemala. It kept her 6-year-old son.
On May 5, Lourdes Marianela De Leon boarded a bus in Guatemala with Leo, her son. Lourdes, a single mother, was 27. Leo was 6. In pictures, they're always smiling together, mom with a dimple on her left cheek, son with a toothy grin. Their goal: to cross the U.S. border illegally with Leo and start a new life with relatives in New Jersey.
