Reporter Johanes Roselló spent four months interviewing families who’d been affected by the deportation of a father or spouse. Their stories were heartbreaking, frustrating and inspiring. Here are some lessons and suggestions for others considering similar projects.
A Mexican father is released from detention thanks to a psychological evaluation used as evidence in court.
Deportation creates emotional difficulty, loss of livelihoods, effects of loneliness and the risk of losing housing and resources to meet the most basic needs.
Looking at kids being part of protests against deportations is something that could and should break anyone’s heart. I believe that no child should be in the position of suffering an unexpected separation from their parents because of immigration laws. But as we know, that situation happens daily.
