I pulled the emergency latch on my 2016 kia Sorento SX. Now the latch won't engage. How can I solve the issue.

The lever is a secondary release mechanism that almost never gets used. Once pulled, it probably bound up in the release position. So first question -- has the white lever returned to the 'home' position where it points straight (let's call it perpendicular to the right/left sides of the car? If not, it's definitely still bound in the release position.

You should be able to manually rotate the latch mechanism by gently pressing a screwdriver on the right side of the latch, and using your fingers to finish the rotation of the latch. It should REMAIN in the latched position afterward. If not, the interior release lever should still be in the 'release' position as well.
