Many undocumented children come to the U.S. to rejoin a parent after years apart. But it’s not always the joyous reunion they expect. The child can feel resentful, like their parents abandoned them. The parent can see their child as ungrateful, not acknowledging all the sacrifices made to bring them here. And it’s often up to schools to find a way to help.
