Hernandez added that the girl was not separated from her mother, and they are being detained together.
She was depicted screaming while a US Customs and Border Patrol agent patted down her mother at a border crossing in southern Texas' Rio Grande Valley.
Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, 32, told the UK Daily Mail that his wife Sandra, 32, had taken their daughter, Yanela Denise, on a risky journey to the US on June 3 without telling him.
Honduran deputy foreign minister Nelly Jerez confirmed Valera's version of events. But while he claims no more children will be ripped from their parents at the USA border moving forward, there will be no recourse for the thousands of families already torn apart. Honduran and federal officials could not immediately be reached for comment by The Post.
Instead, he says, his daughter and her mother are together in US custody at "at a family residential center in Texas". On June 17, 2018, Sanchez was transferred to ICE custody, and is now housed at the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, Texas.
ICE said Sanchez was previously deported to Honduras in July 2013.

He wrote: "Dear Arsenal Fans, I am sorry to leave the club after only one year again". I was excited and proud too, because Arsenal is such a big club all over the world.
"[The mother] was told to set the child down while she was searched". And this week, it was used to create the cover for the July 2 issue of TIME.
After Sanchez left, Valera had no way to contact her or learn of her whereabouts. "All I wanted to do was pick her up, but I couldn't".
Vick ventures into the tumultuous past two weeks of Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy on migrants trying to enter the border illegally and the separation of families that ensued. Valera felt helpless and distressed "imagining my daughter in that situation", he said.
Moore photographed the girl crying as the border agent patted down the mother. As soon as it was over, they were put into a van.
He also said that he was employed: "I thank God that I have a good job here".
"It's hard as a father to see that, but I know now that they are not in danger", he added. "It's a very different scene now", he said, comparing his experiences photographing families at the border now and before Trump's new policy.
It was the most prominent story on the homepage of the conservative news outlet, Breitbart, which called it a "fake news photo". The magazine refuted his story, saying that's not how it chooses people. And the separation from their parents is traumatic enough to be likened to torture.
Multiple news outlets used the photograph as a symbol of the pain of families being separated by US government officials. Enjeti observed that his wife came to the US for economic reasons, not fear of violence, and the he was unhappy with her for taking his little girl on very risky journey.
