Finally a good news story! These kids were really struggling to keep their family’s home after their parents were deported by the Trump administration. Then a kind anonymous man stepped in and saved the day.
On Monday, CNN reported that an anonymous donor has come forward to pay the mortgage and house bills for the next two years for three siblings who lost their parents to deportation this past Christmas.
Humberta and Oscar Campos were deported after living in the United States for more than 30 years. Other than crossing the border illegally three decades ago, neither of them has committed any crimes or broken any laws. They ran a successful lawn care business and raised a family. But, with Trump’s harsh immigration policy, they were thrown out of the country, leaving their three children, who are U.S. citizens, struggling to keep the family’s home.
“Arnold Santos, a deacon at the family’s church, is helping the children while their parents fight to come back to the US. Santos told CNN that an anonymous man is taking over their mortgage and bill payments for the next two years.”
The anonymous donor is also giving the kids $6,000 to use to go visit their parents in Mexico.
The Campos parents are now barred from returning to the U.S. for the next 10 years.
The oldest of the Campos children, Oscar Jr., is 24 and has been working as a security guard. The middle child, Janet, is a 22-year-old college student who has had to take time off from school to pay for the family’s expenses. The youngest child, Erwing, is a 15-year-old high school student.
Thanks to the anonymous donor, Janet will be able to go back to classes for the fall semester. And Erwing will be able to focus all of his attention back on his studies.
And that’s not all of the good news.
After CNN featured this family in an article back in May, they received more than $10,000 from other great people who wanted to help.
