In this Sept. 23, 2015, photo, Pope Francis reaches to give a blessing to Sophie Cruz, 5, from suburban Los Angeles, during a parade in Washington. She also delivered a bright yellow T-shirt and a letter expressing wishes that her mother and father and millions of others who are in the U.S. illegally are allowed to remain in the country. A coalition of Los Angeles-based immigration rights groups pulled off a public-relations coup when a Cruz had a brief encounter with Pope Francis along a tightly controlled parade route.Cruz’s moment to deliver a message about the plight of immigrant parents living in the country illegally had been in the works for nearly a year.
