A Honduran mother and her 21-month-old toddler died last week while trying to cross the Rio Grande into the United States to apply for asylum. Idalia Herrera and her toddler, Iker Cordova, had recently entered the United States to apply for asylum, but they were forced to wait in the border city of Matamoros, Mexico, for their immigration hearing as part of Trump’s contested “Remain in Mexico” policy. CNN reports that Herrera grew desperate as weeks passed and her day in court never came.
