LA Times Today: Father and son separated at the U.S.-Canada border

A family separation case, this time on our northern border with Canada, has ended with a happy reunion between father and son.

A Honduran man had been granted asylum in Canada where he started a new life with his young son, but two years ago the man lost custody of the boy in a situation that reads like a movie script.

The boy, who’s a U.S. citizen, ended up in foster care in Washington state.

We talked to L.A. Times Seattle bureau chief Richard Read about the case, shortly before father and son were reunited.
