Since early May, more than 2,300 children have been separated from their parents by immigration officials along the southwestern border of the US.
And with each passing day, another 60-70 children are taken from their families.
Like many Americans, Rabbi Leora Kaye of New York City has been heartbroken by the news and wanted to find a way to show love and compassion to the children being detained. She works for the Union for Reform Judaism and is part of a group of clergy going to McAllen, Texas, to visit a detention facility.
So she had the idea to bring cards with her from kids in her 8-year-old daughter's third grade class, and she asked the teacher if they could write them this morning.
