The children of an Owensboro man deported in November have enough money to immigrate to Mexico to be with him.
People from around the country donated to a Go Fund Me page set up for the children of Antonio Cuahua after a story about their situation appeared Friday on courierpress.com.
“After (the Courier & Press) posted the story, within minutes we got a notification that someone had donated,” said Jacqueline Lynn Linares, the children’s aunt and temporary legal guardian. “All day it kept climbing. Then at 4:49 p.m. we hit $2,000.”
Linares struggled to raise the money to send the children to Mexico. Their father, Antonio Cuahua, had sole custody of his four children before he was deported. Without him here, Linares told the Courier & Press in early December that the children must immigrate to Mexico or they would enter American foster care.
What a great choice. Send American-born children to Mexico after their father is picked up by our fascist ICE agents engaging in widespread ethnic cleansing at their own expense or go to foster care. What a country we have. Land of the brave and home of the free indeed.
