US-born kids visit family in Guatemala

This interesting article, Minnesota group takes US-born grandchildren to Guatemala for first-time visit with their abuelos, tells the story of 14 kids born in the USA to Guatemalan parents who live here without documentation and thus can’t return to their birth country to visit extended family. The article spotlights the Minnesota-based group which arranged the trip, as well as filmmaker Luis Argueta (AbUSed: The Postville Raid), who documented the journey. Reading the article and watching the film trailer, I see many parallels between the kids described here and my own children, who also cross the border to visit extended family. Looking forward to the film. ~
