Huron Woman Helps Reunite Immigrant Families

Huron Woman Helps Reunite Immigrant Families
HURON, SD -

The surge of unaccompanied immigrant children across the US border has been a hot international topic for weeks. Now, a Huron woman is telling her story about how she has been helping children reunite with their parents for over a decade.

Becky Rogers has been helping immigrant families in Huron since 1995.

She was approached by Rosalia, a five-year resident of Huron. This spring, her two sons, Julio and Kevin Lopez were caught trying to cross the border. The two teenagers say the violence in Guatemala was too dangerous so they had to leave. Rogers help the boy's mom fill out the necessary paperwork to prove she was their mother. Six weeks ago, the boys were reunited with their mom after not seeing her for 14 years. Rogers says it's a long difficult road for these families, but the payoff is worth it.

“When these people get their paper after I keep on you know, let's do it, let's do it, that's the biggest reward. That they have everything they need to be productive working citizens of community of our state, or wherever they choose to live,” Rogers said.

The Lopez brothers have an unknown date in Immigration and Customs Enforcement court to determine if the boys could be deported back to Guatemala.
