This Dec. 23, 2016 photo shows Tamara Alcala Dominguez reuniting with her grandmother Petra Bello Suarez in their home town of Molcaxac, Puebla state, Mexico, during Alcala's first return home since she left Mexico for the U.S. as a toddler.

A special program allowed her to make her first journey back to Mexico, and return safely. (AP Photo/Pablo Spencer)

Now I know I can succeed (in Mexico) or in the States. It was a great burden off my shoulders ... to not fear Mexico." (AP Photo/Marco Ugarte)
