I was so sad when I heard that a family was ripped apart this week by immigration officials. Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos came to the United States 21 years ago as a young teenager. She made a life for herself, worked hard and married. This week she was separated from her husband, two children, home, and job, put into a van and involuntarily moved to the Mexican side of the border. This terrible action does not reflect American generosity and values, we must do better than this.
