Clip: 09/18/2018 | 11m 7s

In rural Honduras, a separated family is desperate for answers about their little girl. After crossing illegally into the U.S. in June, 6-year-old Marianita was sent to a children's shelter as her father was deported without his daughter. More than 400 parents have experienced the same fate, and so far only 21 children have been reunited in their home countries. Yamiche Alcindor reports.
