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.
