Video: An Immigrant Mother Faces Deportation

Posted by on Wed, Apr 24, 2013 at 11:54 AM

In this installment of the fantastic Nashville Docujournal series, a look at an immigrant mother facing possible deportation and separation from her daughters. From the filmmakers:

Fani Gonzalez prepares for a follow-up appointment with the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) wing of the Department of Homeland Security in regards to a previous detainment during a stop caused by a traffic violation. During the previous detainment, Gonzalez signed a voluntary departure agreement — the terms of which, she says, she did not understand at the time of signing — requiring proof of transportation to exit the United States.

It's wrenching.
