Sanctuary from detention, large fines and near-certain deportation

Six years ago, Hilda Ramírez arrived in the United States with her seven-year-old son, Ivan, after fleeing Guatemala. She spent a year in a Texas detention center, where she led women on a hunger strike.

It sends me back to another image: Fathers sharing their first warm meal with their children in weeks.
