In her letter, she begged for the Pope to do something about the immigration reform in the United States. In her letter, she wrote:

"I believe I have the right to live with my parents. I have the right to be happy. My dad works very hard in a factory galvanizing pieces of metal. All immigrants just like my dad feed this country. They deserve to live with dignity. They deserve to live with respect."

Pope Francis embraced the little girl with hugs. This little girl had a lot of courage. Lets hope one day, her dreams will be fulfilled, so she and her family can endure a happy life.
