Why Immigrant Families and Children in Flint Water Crisis Deserve Help, Not Deportation
Parenting, as any mother or father will readily admit, is a tough job. In Flint, Mich., however, that job has become a whole lot tougher since the city’s water supply was poisoned.

Even worse, I’d be worried sick about whether my girls will suffer permanent developmental delays from drinking the toxic water.
