The child is a 10 year old native of Honduras.  She entered the US in 9/10.  The child’s father was murdered in Honduras.  He was murdered in retaliation for his prior bad acts.  The family is concerned that the child will be harmed as a form of further revenge for the father’s acts.  Also, when the father was alive, he was abusive to the mother; the mother left the child in Honduras at the age of 2 because of his abuse.
