A Personal & Continuing Story on Deportation…

No Paperwork Needed

Chapter 6 – Deported

By Sue Thomson

handfuls of ashes

 

The day had arrived

far

too

quickly,

but the process was not as frightening

as it could have been.

 

He was taken to Mexico City

where a relative was able to meet him.

He first went to see his parents…

It has been 13 years…

They sent him alone to cross the border,

wanting him to have a better life than they had.

How deeply they must have loved him…

and yet, how could you send a 13 year old

into the unknown

and all alone?

 

After spending time with his parents,

he will be taken to where relatives of mine live.

I am hoping to see him with our daughter sooner than later.

He now knows it will be 10 years

before he can even begin to apply to come back

to the United States…

We could be 40 before they allow him to come back.

We planned to have another child…

So much to think about…

Difficult decisions…

I am a US citizen.

I can come and go as needed.

Do I move back to Mexico?

Canada?

My mom cries when I mention it…

The conditions in Mexico are not good…

Distance

Living Conditions

Medical Needs

Separation

Grief

Deportation is rarely about just one person.

It affects families and friends.

It rips through layers of relationships,

leaving ashes in its wake…

This is a continuing story based on good friends of author Sue Thomson, as she delves into the effects of deportation and the emotional ramifications which are usually not experienced or felt by many of us in the United States. The story is written from a wife’s perspective. Sue Thomson has set up a Go Fund Me page to help this beautiful family, as they sort out their future and care for their little girl’s medical needs. Please consider making a donation small or large.  https://www.gofundme.com/mellynas-fund-to-get-her-dad-back
