A girl who begged for her dad's release after the Mississippi ICE raids reunited with her father

Magdalena Gomez Gregorio hugged her father for the first time in months after she tearfully begged in front of reporters for his release following a massive immigration sweep in Mississippi.

Her father, Andres Gomez-Jorge, was released from immigration detention last week after relatives and friends raised funds to pay his $7,500 bond.

His daughter's voice was heard around the world in a video that went viral after immigration authorities rounded up hundreds of undocumented workers at several Mississippi food processing plants in early August.

"I need my dad. ... He's not a criminal," Magdalena said, sobbing as she waited with other children at a local gym that offered food and shelter on the day of the raids to children whose parents had been taken.

2. Note that the employers have not been charged.

That just pisses me off to no end.

5. That might as well be $7.5 Billion for some some of these families who have no money.

Bail bond requirements have in effect recreated the infamous Poor Houses we thought we had gotten rid of.
