What if my Undocumented Mom and Dad Are 'Forced to Leave'? Young Speaker Asks DNC

Democrats drew sharp contrasts with Donald Trump's immigration proposals.

Karla Ortiz, an 11-year-old daughter of undocumented immigrants whose tearful embrace with Clinton at a Nevada event became a campaign ad, spoke on stage with her mother Francisca about the fear and insecurity surrounding her parents’ circumstances.

“I’m scared that at any moment, my mom and my dad will be forced to leave,” she said. “I wonder, what if I come home and find it empty?”

The young Ortiz –- who said she wants to go to law school and become an immigration lawyer -– was followed by Astrid Silva, an undocumented immigrant and activist who decried Trump’s proposal to deport the undocumented.

“When Donald Trump talks about deporting 11 million people, he’s talking about ripping families apart,” she said.
