    The fathers were all being held in a detention facility in nearby Otero County, New Mexico, and were reunited with their children at an undisclosed government location.
    Within the western lineage, most haplotypes either formed small clades (probability value [greater than or equal to] 0.95) or were unresolved; however, a single clade (Haplotype group i) was recovered that contained eight haplotypes including the two from Yuma County, Arizona, and six haplotypes from Otero County, New Mexico. The parsimony tree (topology not shown) was similar in topology to the Bayesian tree.
    Haplotypes from Yuma County were most similar to haplotype H, found in two individuals from Otero County, New Mexico, and differed from H by seven and nine nucleotide substitutions, respectively.
    Although 90% highest-posterior-density intervals for all pairwise estimates of divergence of populations overlapped, the population from Otero County, New Mexico, had the most recent divergence from S.
    In general, pairwise [[PHI].sub.ST]-values were highest among comparisons involving Yuma County, Arizona, with Otero County, New Mexico, being less divergent from Yuma County relative to others.
    These haplotypes differed from each other by four nucleotide substitutions and formed a close association with six haplotypes from Otero County, New Mexico, and a more distant relationship to other haplotypes from the west-central United States and northern Mexico representing the western lineage.
