What we hear!

“The worst thing I would say about the government separating the families is that a lot of kids were probably stuck by themselves and were so lost and confused about what was going on and had no idea why they were in trouble or anything… They were probably wondering why they can’t enjoy life the same as every other person here.
—Angel, Rose City High School

“It was great to get to explore and … learn new things about someone else’s culture. And then we went to the museum – it was a great experience.”

Andrew at John Muir High School
