PROJECTS: Separation of Families: 2252996

Jorro, 6, eats lunch at the Senda De Vida Casa Del Emigrante, a center that houses immigrant families seeking shelter before crossing the border, on Wednesday, June 20, 2018, in the border town of Reynosa, Mexico. Jorro's family has been staying at the center since March after a failed attempt to cross the border when they first arrived.  The family of six fled Honduras in hopes of being granted asylum in the United States, but has since decided to postpone another attempt to cross for fear parents and children being separated from one another.  Jorro's mother, {quote}Lorena,{quote} says, they can’t go back because of the violence, they can’t go forward because of U.S. Policies, and Mexico is not somewhere they can stay indefinitely.
