In a small room on a small island in Mexico’s Caribbean Sea, a man is reading aloud from a letter written by a Mexican prisoner, one of the last people alive in a detention center where he was tortured.
It is the first time Mr. López, who has been held at the detention center in El Salvador since March 18, has seen his mother in more than a decade.
“I have never been able to see my mother,” he said.

“The first time I saw her I cried,” he continued, pausing to reflect on his own ordeal.
His mother was killed in the 1980s and he is not sure why she left him behind in El Salto, about 100 kilometres (62 miles) east of Mexico City.
“When I went to the church that morning, I was crying, I didn’t know why I had to go back there,” Mr. Guzman said.
“It was a big, long prison and I was the last one there.”
Since arriving in El Salvatrucha in 2012, Mr. Zúñiga has been kept in isolation.
He has never seen his family, even though his father is still alive.
His father died two years ago.

Mr. Guevara, who is also now in Mexico, said he had no idea why his family left him in El Buen.
“My mother never left us,” he recalled.
“She was always with me.”
In a few days, Mr Zúíñiga will go to the United States to meet his family and see his mother.
His brother and father will also be visiting.
But for now, he is looking forward to seeing his mother and the other prisoners in the El Salvato prison.
“They left me in a lot of pain, but they never left me alone,” Mr Guzman, who also went to El Salvatos detention center, said.

Mr Zuchiga’s story, in addition to being the first of its type, was the first to be published in a prominent Mexican newspaper, the Televisa El Mundo, on the eve of Mr. Trump’s inauguration in January.
“This was the best thing I could do,” Mr Zuziga said.
The story was widely reported, with stories in major Mexican newspapers including El Universal, El Universal newspaper and El País, as well as television and radio stations.
Mr Trump promised in his election victory speech to bring about a new era of cooperation between Mexico and the United State.
“We will not be a friend to Mexico,” he declared.
“And we will not let Mexico, any nation, to be a partner of any country.”
A former prosecutor in Mexico who has worked closely with Mr. Humberto Gómez said the El Salvador case was “the best case that I could see.”
Mr Gómeso said the family of the inmate who wrote the letter did not have a representative in Mexico at the time.
Mr Gombaso said Mr. Guerrero’s lawyer is now helping to get the family’s request for the letter heard by a judge.
“That’s the most important thing,” he added.
“A lot of other things were written to the family in other countries, but the family has never had a representative here.”
Mr Guílez, who was not present at the trial, said the message he got from his family was simple.
“If there are other immigrants in El Escorial, we must protect them.”

(The Associated Press) El Salvador’s new president, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, said in an interview on the state television station that the government was taking a “fresh look” at the prison and had asked the Mexican Supreme Court to consider a request for an independent review of the conditions there.
Mexico’s Supreme Court said last year it had already reviewed the prison’s conditions
