Six-year-old Heyli was separated from her father after crossing the U.S. border in late May. Her mother and aunt, who have spoken to her by phone, say she cries constantly and begs them to take her away from the Arizona facility where she is being held. "There's nothing else I can say to say to make her stop crying," Heyli's mother said. Image by Jay Root. Honduras, 2018.
