Soften the Judge’s Heart

A mother writes a symbolic letter to the president asking for help.

Soften the Judge’s Heart

Please pray for me.

            Ask God

To soften the judge’s heart.


We have been in family detention

            Six months.

My children are ages 10, 9, and 3.

My youngest child

            has never met his father.

I was pregnant when he fled El Salvador.

He lives in Virginia.


He never asked for asylum.

            Now it is too late.

Then I fled with our children.

We long to be together.

            As a family.
