Apology to an ICE Officer

Sandra Figueroa

I’m sorry for pledging allegiance to your flag of the United States of America.
I thought it was my flag too, since I never knew any other.
I’m sorry for eating a home cooked meal made by mamá.
I didn’t know I had to eat fast food by myself.
I’m sorry for my brownskin.
I tried covering it with baby powder, but it didn’t work.
I’m sorry for my accent.
I didn’t know I wasn’t allowed a second language.
I want to sincerely let you know how bad I feel for disrespecting you.
My culture teaches me to apologize for my errors.
