CGiii Comment

Stacy: From a horrendous situation all the way to happiness...her story is an absolute inspiration. Those who oppose immigration ought to count their blessings...because, if the shoe was on the other foot?!?


Brandon: His default is to hide...a tremendously touching portrait of a successful, hard-working [gentle] man who just want to be who he is. he states that under Trump, America is becoming more and more like China...that's terrifying!
