The mother said she did not want to talk about how she and her son were separated, but a family member said the two were kidnapped and the father could only pay a ransom.

“They left me there in a place where I didn’t know, I didn’t know where to go,” said Meylin Obregón, the mother.

The boy lives in Donna’s migrant processing facility and his father has already signed the necessary documents so that he can return to Nicaragua.
