A woman, identified only as Maria, sits with Ruben Garcia, director of the Annunciation House, informs her that she will be cared for by them in an Annunciation House facility on July 21, 2018 in El Paso, Texas. Maria, originally from Guatemala, is waiting to be reunited with her child, who is now in New York, after being separated for one month when the two crossed into the United States. A court-ordered July 26th deadline is approaching for the U.S. government to reunite as many as 2,551 migrant children ages 5 to 17 that had been separated from their families.
