Imagine the excitement of your first day of school and all the things you can only anticipate as the new year begins. Now imagine you are a Hispanic child and you come home excited to share about your new teacher and new friends only to find your dad or mom has been picked up and deported by the authorities.
Following last week’s Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids, children literally found their parent or parents being taken away not knowing if they will ever see them again. Our Hispanic community has been deeply affected by these raids. Shelby County Schools is expecting to be missing many children’s enrollment as they start the new school year. Children at home await in fear when their parents don’t show up at the appointed time for them to come home. Wives and husbands fear being separated.
