Elmer Sr. came here first, fleeing violence in Guatemala.  When he tried to bring his family here, things went bad.  They were stopped at the border.  Ludina was sent to detention and the children, 17 year old Elmer Jr. and 9 year old Jackie, were sent to separate facilities in Michigan and then foster homes.  Dad worked tirelessly to get them released.  The kids came first, then Ludina was finally able to join them.  You can watch this NYTImes video of their reunion to hear more of their story. 

Now they need us to help them get settled and cover legal costs.  Please give if you can, if not, please share this so that others may help.  Many thanks.
