This Mother’s Day weekend, guest host Claudio Sanchez joins Latino USA to explore stories about Familia. From one family split apart by deportation, to the story of unlikely friends who become as close as family. Claudio tells us about his mother, Blanca Luz, and how she shaped his attitude about learning. We hear from a couple of experts about the advantages and disadvantages of Latino kids in schools—and how their parents are involved. Two women remember a relative who came to Texas during the Mexican revolution. We learn about how pets play a role in domestic violence situations. And we get a little wisdom from Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux.
