Award-winning Author Yuyi Morales’ Pulls Us Through the Sliding Doors so that we Might Know the Pain of the Racial Hatred our Country’s Politics are Causing for Mexican Youth in Closing Remarks at SLJ 2018 Day of Dialogue

June 1, 2018

You simply MUST listen to what Mexican American Yuyi Morales has to say about the damage the political climate is causing her, a Mexican immigrant who crossed the border with her infant son two decades ago, as she realizes today her son would be removed from her arms and she might not have ever seen him again…had it been today.

Yuyi MoralesNow her friend’s children are scared to go to school, frightened out of their minds that someone will come and take them away from their parents, frighten from the bullying, frighten that they might come home to an empty home because someone is coming to take their parents away

Had she not come to this country, we would have never been blessed with the stories she bestowed upon us, in the books she’s written.
