Should have legally entered the country, via an application from the local embassy or consulate office like most folk with nothing to hide do...
Also Obama locked the kids in cages CNN, not the 'Don' those photos were from 2015; we won November 9th 2016.

I want to fight anyone who rated this down and didn't leave a review saying why. This is a WONDERFUL story of an American born girl whose Haitian mother is being detained for being undocumented. It uses beautiful illustrations and compelling narrative to follow the family through both the pain of separation and the joy if their eventual reunion.
