Description

When Julie Schwietert Collazo heard that migrant families were being separated at the U.S.-Mexico, she wanted to do something to help. But how could she, just one person, thousands of miles away from the border, actually make a difference? Julie tells Alex how she found one tiny way that she could help—and how doing that one tiny thing turned into something much larger than she ever could have imagined.

Where was she when Obama was separating families at the border, huh??? Oh, that's right, according to you liberals it only started happening when Trump got into office. Do your damn homework, most of those kids don't even belong to the adults who are bringing them to the border! It's called human trafficking!!! #BuildTheWall
