Bodies Of Salvadoran Father, Daughter Return Home After Drowning In Rio Grande

The remains of a Salvadoran father and his 23-month-old daughter were returned from the US to their homeland on Sunday.

A harrowing photo of their bodies lying face down in the Rio Grande became symbols of the perils of illegal immigration to the United States.

The widely circulated photo ignited fresh criticism of U.S. President Donald Trump’s tough policies on undocumented migrants entering the United States.
