Noemi Álvarez Quillay took the first steps of the 6,500-mile journey to New York City from the southern highlands of Ecuador on Tuesday, Feb. 4, after darkness fell.
A bashful, studious girl, Noemi walked 10 minutes across dirt roads that cut through corn and potato fields, reaching the highway to Quito. She carried a small suitcase. Her grandfather Cipriano Quillay flagged down a bus and watched her board. She was 12.

So the moral of the story is it’s dangerous trying to sneak into other people’s countries? I kind of knew that already.
All the tear jerking pro-amnesty propaganda that’s fit to print.
These parents are out of their mind. No way would I sent a child of mine on a journey like that!
I have very little respect for parents that enter the US illegally and ask their 12 year old child to make a trek to the US all by herself, and enter illegally, to join them.
The child and what happened to her is heartbreaking. The parents should be deported.
“Noemi was part of a human flood tide that has swelled since 2011: The United States resettlement agency expects to care for nine times as many unaccompanied migrant children in 2014 as it did three years ago.”
Or as Stalin said, “The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of millions is a statistic”
A 12 year old child doing something most grown-ups would be terrified to even dream about. An amazing story with a tragic ending. If her parents came here legally non of this would have been necessary, a sad situation.
Rest in peace angel.
They’ve heard about DACA and are taking advantage of it.
We cannot be the safety valve for all of our southern, socialist neighbors - no free haven to illegals!
These parents are not the kind of people we want living in the US.
They sent a 12 year old on a 6500 mile trip...on foot?
You trust a 12 year old to a coyote to smuggle her into the country?
This is straight down child abuse.
They parents should he found, charged with child neglect, and then deported.
The parents, kid and grandfather obviously had enough to eat wherever they lived.
Bloomberg encouraging illegals to live in New York shares some of the blame. No enforcement of the parent’s employers or deportation.
I agree. It was moronic to tell a 12 year-old to make a trip like that by herself.
Obama is to blame for allowing those people to believe they can come into this country illegally with no consequences.
if an American parent sent their 12 year old child 1200 miles on their own, the state would take them away.
when the collapse comes these Marxists will all be arrested.
NYT Propaganda Pity Party
Her death can be laid at the feet of all those who have aided, abetted, agitated for and encouraged iillegal immigration. But hey, the Democrats need votes and the CoC members need cheap, pliant labor so what’s a little girl or two?
Why isn’t our media asking the obvious question?
Why is a very rich country like Mexico not providing jobs for its people?
Of course, the media could ask the same thing of America, but we know they won’t.
Noemis parents have said little publicly. Her mother, Martha V. Quillay, who works in a hair salon, spoke briefly with a reporter, then curtailed the conversation. Her father, José Segundo Álvarez Yupa, a construction worker, said it was too difficult to discuss. These are private matters, he said. This is a very painful thing. Its all over. We want to recover, we want to move on.
