Aren’t laws and regulations supposed to be great for our country?
Well, I am a clear example that this is not true
The government thinks that separating a family because of immigration issues is ok
I mean, they are just doing their work, right?
But does the government ever think about the trauma it causes these children and even their parents?
Deportation was a word that at 11 I did not know what it meant
It was a word that was going to affect my life forever.
It is a word that I have disliked for about 8 years now.
It is a word that has kept me from my mother, sister and father
Today I am not afraid to talk my life. Today I stand tall because regardless of what the government did to my family and I, I can say that in the end our love was eternal for one another.
But I will say that I will have a gap in my heart for all those years that the government made my parents wait, and that my mother is still waiting.
