Cindy Hilbinger of Greensboro, N.C., the white mother of 13-year-old Katie Bess: “I’ve talked a lot about the immigration issue — it’s personal to me because, [as an ESL teacher,] I work with a lot of immigrant students. I talk to Katie Bess about some of the rhetoric we hear in the news and about why people have certain attitudes about immigration. I hope that in doing that, she’ll be less likely to believe everything she hears or to have a negative view of immigrants.
