Separated Mother’s Message to Her 3-Year-Old Daughter

This video from the USA says about itself:

A Separated Mother’s Message to Her 3-Year-Old Daughter

15 August 2018

Four months ago, “M” and her daughter applied for asylum at the San Diego border. But her daughter was sent to a foster care facility in Los Angeles and she was held at the Otay Mesa detention facility. With the help of her lawyer, she recorded this message for her daughter. Illustrator Mark Fiore has animated it.

Mark Fiore writes about this:

For this animation, I worked with KQED’s John Sepulvado, who brought out a video of a mother in indefinite immigration detention. Since the woman and her daughter (who were separated at the border when they were APPLYING FOR ASYLUM) were fleeing a Mexican drug cartel, we wanted to use cartoons instead of actual video.

As of now they are still separated and her 3-year-old daughter has now turned 4.
