Arnold, Maryland - June 20, 2018: Nila Serrano, 46, prepares dinner with her four-year-old son Nico Serrano at their home in Arnold, Md., Wednesday June 20, 2018. Ms. Serrano has a Honduran half sister and nephew who are seeking domestic abuse asylum in the United States, but were separated at the U.S. border under the Trump Administration's Zero Tolerance immigration policy. Nila's half sister Delsy Guadalupe Serrano Torres, who goes by “Lupe,” is in a detention center in Texas, while Danny Cortes Serrano, Nila's eight-year-old nephew, is living with a foster family in Manhattan. Ms. Serrano, a citizen born in Michigan, and her husband, Elnar, a U.S. resident from Honduras, are planning to sponsor Danny. Lupe was awarded a $2500 bond the day Trump signed an executive order reversing the family separation at the border. The sponsorship process, says Nila, has been exhausting.
