HOUSTON, Texas—A young native Honduran girl whose mother was gunned down in the streets of Houston was taken into Child Protective Services (CPS) custody after her mother’s death. Both the girl and her mother were in the country illegally. This week, the 7-year-old girl was returned to her father in Honduras. Relatives in the U.S. were afraid they might end up like the child’s mother and were not willing to take the girl. Rumors of a drug cartel related death made them hesitant to do so.
