A 6-year-old Honduran migrant goes to Washington

ALLSTON, Mass. — On a recent morning, 6-year-old Darling Guevara, a boy from Honduras, hopped on a toy truck parked in a front yard in this lower-middle-class neighborhood. He steered the wheel and waved farewell.

“Goodbye,” he said to his mother and two visitors as he set off on an imaginary trip. “I’m leaving.”

From the porch, his mom, Margarita Cartagena, flashed a sad smile and waved back at him.

What she really wants for Darling, and for herself, is to stay.
