"We are dead in life": the sad letter to the Americans of 54 migrant parents separated from their children
Dozens of immigrants held in a Texas detention center, mostly mothers, wrote an open letter to the people of the United States asking them to help them get together as soon as possible with their children.
Fifty of the fathers and mothers arrested in the detention center of Port Isabel, Texas, signed on Sunday an open letter to the American people asking them to help them get together as soon as possible with their children, separated from them shortly after entering United States illegally.
"We are desperate mothers, we are not criminals, but we do need your help," begins the handwritten correspondence delivered by the detained immigrants to the lawyer Eileen Blessinger, who shared it with Univision Noticias.
"The US government kidnapped our children with deceit and without the opportunity to say goodbye", the letter continues, which is also a chronicle of how the Donald Trump government toughened immigration policy in recent months.
These parents, mostly Central Americans who traveled to the United States to flee from the violence that ravages their countries, were separated from their children abruptly, have problems locating them and communicating with them, do not know when they will see them again and They complain about how difficult it is to ask for asylum.
