Questions from a Laotian ICE Detainee

"If it is indeed true that it takes a whole village to raise one child, then what village is ultimately responsible for rehabilitating its wayward youth?

How can I be expected to survive in a country where I am illiterate and am all by myself?

The authoritarian regime that tried to extreminate my family is still entrenched in power. The very same government that America saved us from is now the one it wants to deliver me to."

The above is an excerpt from the essay "Adopted American" by Xuliyah Potong, a Latoian waiting for deportation.

I definitely don't have all the answers, but I know that as long as people keep sharing ideas like this, the truth will eventually reveal itself and maybe it can make a difference somewhere.

That's a very good question, but one that is better asked prior to the commission of a crime than afterwards.

The truth is that thousands of people immigrate to new countries each year - many with the most minimal of language skills. But those that are focused, study hard and work hard find a way to succeed. Where is there a guarantee that we will live a life free of hardship? There simply isn't regardless of our faith, our race or even or nationality.

People survived the Asian tsunami. People survived Hurricane Katrina. And, while Xuliyah may face many difficulties at first if he is deported, he will also survive his deportation if he is willing to study hard and work hard.

If you have the full essay, please repost it online. I couldn't find it anywhere and would be interested in reading it.
