“Let’s go take my daddy out of that place. I miss him why is he there?”
These were the words of a three-year-old Dana whose father had just been detained to be deported.
The mother, Mireya, says the little girl cried every night, saying she wanted her father home and was confused as to why he was in there in the first place, demanding that he is brought home to her. The mother says on one visit to the detention facility, the daughter asked her to break the glass, unbeknown to the child that she would probably never see her father free any time soon.
