How to Sprout Alfalfa and Clover Sprouts (Video)

This couple tried to raise $1500 on Facebook this week to help this wonderful group on the border that helps get immigrant parents out on bond and gives them legal aid. Instead of $1500, they so far got $11 million! And volunteers offering to fly into help too. Trump is signing an exec order making it stop today but did nothing to reunite the 2300 children already taken. They will not be grandfathered into the new plan and are stuck.My sister says, “
