These are horrific days for children of Hispanic heritage now that Donald Trump is their president. I frequently think about what it must be like to be a child who was born in the United States with parents who were not legal immigrants. Think of the prospect of being forced to be sent to Mexico. Most of these children are not fluent in Spanish, they have spent their lives in America, and now thousands will be forced to live in a foreign nation because the red headed bully is their president.
The only analogy in my life is the plight of Jewish children living in Nazi Germany who were subject to abuse, to hatred, and even to physical violence–usually at the hands of fellow students! Then, those fortunate to leave Nazi Germany were sent to foreign lands where they had to undergo the experience of becoming part of a new culture. Such is the life of thousands of children in America! How did we get to this situation in this alleged bastion of democracy??
