  • One of few stories of children being reunited with parent(s). Remember the many migrant parents who may never see their children again, particularly if they have already been deported.

    Finally they are reunited. Hearing that girl’s plea is heartbreaking and this experience may have possibly scarred her for life. I could not imagine how she must have felt when she was suddenly taken away from her family not understanding what was going on. The horror and sadness that poor little girl must have felt each night. This zero tolerance to immigrants is hurting the children who are supposed to be protected. Trump’s government has spread hatred all over America because of policies like this one. Even American citizens are getting bullied just because they are either black, hispanic, muslim or asian.

  • It’s heartbreaking to read, I can’t imagine trying to escape a bad life and being separated from my child for any amount of time. Our country was built by immigrants who cane here seeking a better life. While I do think coming here should be done legally, I do understand the desperation some must feel

    It’s heartbreaking to read, I can’t imagine trying to escape a bad life and being separated from my child for any amount of time. Our country was built by immigrants who cane here seeking a better life. While I do think coming here should be done legally, I do understand the desperation some must feel. On another side though if a citizen breaks the law we would be separated from our children as well..... The children should be placed somewhere safe instead of a detention center until things get sorted out, they didn’t ask for any of this.
