ARMENIA, El Salvador (Reuters) – Ana Henriquez prays that her granddaughter, six, will soon be reunited with her mother, even if it means that they are both deported back to El Salvador.

US President Donald Trump yesterday backed down and abandoned the policy aimed at immigrants illegally crossing the US-Mexico border after images of youngsters in cages sparked outrage at home and abroad.
