A pregnant woman from Honduras, who followed the Central-American migrant caravan, trespassed the U.S.-Mexico border and ended up giving birth to her second child in the United States.

Per a report by the Newsweek, the 19-year-old woman, identified as Maryury Elizabeth Serrano-Hernandez, crossed into the United States along with her husband, and her 2-year-old son on November 26. The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents had taken all three into custody.

While in custody, Hernandez — who was eight months pregnant — complained of abdominal pain after which she was shifted to a hospital where she gave birth to her second child. Although Hernandez, her husband, and the other child entered the U.S. illegally, the baby born on U.S. soil is now an American citizen.
