The father and daughter appeared in this picture, face-to-face on the edge of the river and a small head inside her father’s shirt, apparently trying to swim without losing his daughter.
This image is similar of the picture of the Syrian child Ilan (3 years), whose body was washed away on the shores of Turkey in 2015 and turned into an icon of the migration tragedy.
They travel from El Salvador on April three and spent 2 months in a camp in southern Mexico, awaiting for the news of their asylum request to the US,then they decided to go by bus to the border on Sunday to try to harry up their travel.
And when they arrived, they found the consulate closed but they also learned they were far down a list of hundreds of migrants in line for interviews.Then they decided to make the crossing illegally rather than wait – a decision that led to their deaths.
