From WBEZ in Chicago:. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials at O'Hare Airport released three American citizen children to their undocumented mother late Thursday afternoon.

The children, all girls, ages 9, 10 and 13, had been held at the airport for more than 12 hours.

In addition, several advocates gathered at the international terminal at O'Hare for hours rallying in support of the family.

After reuniting with her daughters, the girls' mother told reporters that she was afraid that she would be deported if she came to airport.

The girls had been held there since 3 a.m. when they arrived from Mexico with a cousin.

They used three American citizens, who happen to be children, to bait their mother out of hiding.

No American citizen should be held without charge anyway, but they certainly shouldn't be held to function as bait. »
