THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
LARRY KING, HOST, LARRY KING LIVE: Janet Reno, as you know, is in Miami tonight, and she has just left the home of Sister Jeanne O'Laughlin of Barry College. Let's pick up what they're talking about.
(JOINED IN PROGRESS)
SISTER JEANNE O'LAUGHLIN, PRESIDENT, BARRY UNIVERSITY: A heavy conversation between the family, the attorney general, and the commissioner of the INS. The attorney general listened carefully to what the Gonzalez family had to say. She was very attentive, took numerous notes, and she listened to everything they had to say. She was very respectful, and they were very honest.
The pain of this family and their understanding of the pain of Juan Miguel was very evident, and they have expressed over and over again their loving family and their desire to be a loving family whole again.
It is very difficult to know how it will unfold at this point. The lawyers will be meeting, and they will be talking to the attorney general some time this evening or early in the morning.
I sincerely believe that with all the concern and the prayer within this community that there will be a meaningful, nonviolent solution no matter what final decisions are made. It is my hope and it is the hope of the family that as we rest tonight, weary from the day, that in the morn we will be re-energized and recommitted to following both the law and responding, hopefully in truth, to justice.
KING: We will elaborate on this more, of course, at the top of the hour, and this continuing story, and CNN is following it around the clock as well, as we are on this program. Obviously, the lawyers and Ms. Reno will get together. She said maybe tonight, certainly tomorrow morning.
