NEW YORK (AP) - A New York judge has ordered the immediate release of a two-year old Honduran boy that was separated from his father at the border more than five months ago, calling the separation of the two "the most cruel of all cruelties."

The boy, only identified as D.J.C.V. at a hearing in federal court in Manhattan on Monday, is expected to be released from the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement and be given to his father.

According to a U.S. attorney, the child has been living with a New York foster family. The father, only identified as Mr. C, spent five months in detention centers in Texas, New Jersey and New York and was released on bond last week.
