Like many immigrant parents of Central American children who cross the U.S.-Mexico border alone, Elva Marroquin Rosales is now in agony over what became of her two small youngsters who dared to enter the United States illegally by crossing Rio Grande River.
For two or three weeks, the Los Angeles area mother heard nothing about her son Angel, 10, and daughter Dulce, 7. It's a silence many Central American families in the United States endure, wondering for weeks or even months if their child is alive or dead.
Then, Marroquin finally heard word about two weeks ago: she received a phone call from an "immigration" official in Texas who desperately sought the mother's voice in order to calm her two sobbing children, who were apparently in a detention facility.
"My children were heartbroken, sad, tearful, crying beyond comparison, begging me to take them out of there," Marroquin, 25, said. "Their begging was so distressing because I couldn't run to get them."
Since then, Marroquin has been unable to track down the detention facility in Texas that called her, and now the angst of her children's absence goes on, day after day.

These people are sending their kids across and then pretending to be victims of something
It’ child abuse / neglect in this country if you leave your 8 year old to babysit your 5 year old while you walk to the corner to get a loaf of bread. This is child abuse, not “agonizing.”
Catch ‘em, neuter ‘em...
Cry me a river. I’m agonizing for the future of my grandchildren and their grandchildren. **** these so called Central American “parents”. They all are scumbags for allowing their children to be used as props by the white boys down at the DNC.
They DUMPED their children, nothing less.
“In Marroquin’s case, she and her husband have been living in the United States for six years and now have an 8-month-old baby, their third child, whom the two older siblings haven’t met face-to-face.”
They abandoned two children for six years? Wouldn’t that be the very definition of `unfit parents’ ?
Well, we must reunite these people ASAP and pay them a large sum for their emotional distress.
Maybe this is cold-hearted, but I can’t think of them as “her” children any more. She effectively abandoned them.
She is shedding crocodile tears.
child abandonment is a crime I thought
Yep - Elva should not have sent her children to the U$A alone. This is just part two of the plan - gin up some pity for the ‘parent$’ so they can come here and $ign up for the goodie$.
Wait a minute!! The article says “the Los Angeles area mother”....huh? She’s in this country and the kids are sent over the border from where to find her in LA???? If that’s what was going on they should be sent back to whoever sent them across ( I don’t think those 2 kids could cross the Rio Grande alone) and send mom packing too.
DON'T DO THAT!
Deport them all, postage due.
This woman is a child neglector.
Send her kids back where they belong. I don’t want to watch or pay for them.
They couldn’t be happier their child got one foot on dry land.
Not to worry, Obama will have them adopted by some marvelous fun loving gay couple. /s
They dumped their children knowing that we won’t deport them and that we’ll accept the parent once the child has some kind of status.
If I were president I would be loudly talking about the possibility of putting these abandoned children up for adoption by American families.
