Congressman Joaquin Castro released a statement Friday afternoon saying Maria is back where she belongs.

"This young girl and her loved ones have been through a traumatizing ordeal. I wish them the best, and hope Rosa Maria’s health improves."

Castro also blasted the Trump Administration for 'callous actions' stating the U.S shouldn't be a place where those seeking major surgery should be subject to apprehension.
