Thank you all in advance for taking the time to read my cousin's story.
My cousin, Frida (pictured), has been living in the US for years now. She attended college in San Antonio and has resided there with her family and daughter, Camila (also pictured).
In the recent days, Frida took a weekend trip to Mexico for a wedding, expecting to return home the following Monday. Upon her arrival in the United States (after #MuslimBan was put in place), she was refused entry even though she had a legitimate visa and was not coming from any "banned" countries. She was told her visa would be revoked for 5 years and was forced to return to Mexico.
Frida's whole life and everything she owns is here in Texas. Most importantly, her daughter is here and away from her mother. Through this campaign, our goal is to raise money for Frida's immigration attorney so she can restore her visa as well as to be able to send Camila to Mexico temporarily so she does not have to be away from her mom any longer. Any reasonable human being can agree that waiting 5 years for Frida to be reunited with her daughter will never be an acceptable option or solution.
Frida is staying with family friends at the moment in Mexico but has nothing to her name and is trying to begin this process with very little financial assistance.
I thank you all for taking the time to know her story and please, let's help this Momma and Daughter be together once again until her situation can be resolved properly.
