Little girl shares immigration message with Pope Francis

A girl who met Pope Francis during his parade in Washington shared a message about immigration in a letter to him.

Sophie Cruz got beyond a barricade and approached the popemobile. She and her father later spoke with the AP.

“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," Sophie said later in the day.
