The two Ecuadorian sisters dumped by human smugglers at the border wall may soon be reunited with their parents in New York City, according to an official.
Magdalena Nunez, of the Consulate of Ecuador in Houston, didn’t have a timeline on the reunion between the girls, Yareli 3, and Yasmina 5, and their parents Yolanda Macas Tene and father Diego Vacacela Aguila — but believed it would be in a matter of days.
“We need to verify the identity of the parents and confirm they are the parents and make sure they are in good condition to receive the girls,” Nunez told The Post on Thursday. “It’s a process … We’re working to make sure it’s an expedited process and the girls spend as minimal time as possible separated from their parents.”
She added that the girls are “doing very well.”
“We have been in contact with them and confirmed they are in good health,” she said.
