A Mother Of "Deportation Orphans" / by Jordana Gustafson | May 9, 2014

A Mother Of “Deportation Orphans”

We hear the story of Liliana Ramos, a deportee living in Tijuana, Mexico. Her children live hundreds of miles away in Oregon. She’s as involved as she can be, calling to remind them to wear scarves and hats when it’s cold out. But she’s had to start over in a strange town and join a community of mothers who can’t sleep at night for worrying about their children. She moved to Mexico 2 years ago after her deportation.
