They don’t want their moms to be taken away from them: March 11, 2017

Dear Mr. VP,

“I have children crying in the classroom, crying in my office,” she says. “When I ask them, ‘Why are you crying?’ They have expressed to me that they don’t want their moms to be apprehended and taken away from them. It’s something heavy on my heart.”

— A teacher says this in this NPR story about deportation. 

Children crying about their parents being taken away. Imagine how frightened they must be. And now I implore you again: imagine they were your own.
