Children’s Stories of Family Seperation: “They took My Dad”

A young child’s account

A teacher in Immokalee sent us the following from one of her students in class. It is heart wrenching to see what is said.

Here’s a brief excerpt of the context from the teacher: ‘I wanted to share with you another story that my student wrote for me today…the assignment was to write about whatever they wanted.  after she wrote this I asked her what her and her sister wrote in their note and she said “we put in words that told him we loved him.”   Again, I do not know exact details but i talked with her teacher today and her father has already been sent back to mexico.’

This little girl adds:

This is the impact of FAMILY SEPERATION from the words of our children.
