Eddy, 17, and Lilian, nine, were separated from their mother at the US border on 19 May. The family was fleeing violence in Guatemala – only to be ripped apart under the Trump administration’s 'zero-tolerance' immigration policy. Eddy and Lilian's mother was prosecuted and sent to the T Don Hutto immigration detention center in central Texas. For five weeks, she had no idea where her two children were. They had been left behind at a processing center and then flown to foster care in Grand Rapids, Michigan – where they were held in separate homes.
