On June 14, 2014 Saul Zarco Corona, and his U.S. citizen daughter, Giselle Zarco, crossed the Bridge of the Americas leading from Nuevo Laredo, Mexico to Laredo, Texas. Accompanied by his attorney, John R. Antia, and Rev. Walter Coleman, Saul and his daughter walked through the turnstiles leading up to the Custom and Border Protection processing hub. Once inside, Saul began the processing of his request for Humanitarian Parole—temporary, conditional entry to the United States. Finally, he and his daughter were taken to a room where he met with his wife, Rosio Fragoso, also a U.S. citizen. They hadn’t seen each other in 8 years.
