A little girl heard crying in a viral recording from inside an immigrant processing center will soon be reunited with her mother.

Salvadoran mother, Cindy Madrid-Henriquez, has been separated from her daughter, Jimena, for nearly a month after illegally crossing the Rio Grande by raft near Mission.

After being released from a Port Isabel detention facility on Wednesday, Madrid-Henriquez spoke at a press conference alongside her immigration attorney, Thelma O. Garcia, on Thursday and said she will do anything to be reunified with her daughter.

Madrid-Henriquez said she and her daughter were fleeing to America because of corruption and violence in El Salvador.

Garcia says her client has been going through an emotionally tasking experience without her daughter, who is currently at an immigrant shelter in Phoenix.

Madrid-Henriquez hopes to be reunited with her daughter on Friday.
