Ever since my story went public, especially after August 3rd, the day of my deportation, I have had many people contacting me. Some of them to share their immigration story, others to insult me and to tell me to stop using my husband’s military service for my benefit. The amount of people contacting me was overwhelming that I had to temporary block my Facebook account. A few days later I started reading and responding the emails of the ones that were asking me what to do. I am not a lawyer by any means, but I could certainly offer to them a word of hope. I know firsthand the feeling of despair and humiliation. So as I was reading their stories I could not help but to cry and cry. These deportees like me, are fathers and mothers they have left behind their kids, their husbands. A lot of the people who wrote to me and still do.re Are about to be deported despite having an American husband and US- born children and no criminal record just like me. We are not criminals! We are ordinary human beings just looking for a better life and the pursuit of happiness. After reading their messages, I can’t help but to ask God why so much pain in the world? Why so much evil? I know now what a deportation does to a human being to our families, to our kids! It can steal your dignity and happiness, at least temporary if you let it! and worse yet it can steal your hope and faith. I refuse to let this situation take away my hope. I have to go on. For my girls for me for those who have and still reach out to me daily to share their story to share their pain. What will I tell them if they ask me what to do if I allow those feelings of sorrow take control of my life? I tell them do not give up this is hard-no doubt about it. But please know God still in control and this administration will not be there forever and one day hopefully soon a good man or perhaps a good woman with a kind heart will change the broken immigration laws and they and I and many others like me, will be together again with our families. We Just have to hang in there!!
