The children arrived on separate flights, as the administration of US President Donald Trump seeks to comply with a court order to reunite migrant children with their families. The children were then taken to a state-run shelter Nuevas Raices where their families were waiting for them. One mother Lourdes de Leon was overjoyed to see her son Leo Jeancarlo for this first time in four months. She described it as «the worst thing that can happen to a mother.» Little Leo seemed excited to be back. Promising to return to school, he said the first he would do when he got home was play with his toys. The First Lady of Guatemala Patricia Marroquin attended the reuniting ceremony.
