Video: A Family Struggles Facing Deportation

In this video, Eileen Mignoni tells the story of an immigrant family struggling with the arrest of their son, John. According to Mignoni, "an estimated 35,000 people were placed in detention proceedings during 2008, many of them through the efforts of local law-enforcement agencies that partner with the Department of Homeland Security to detain and remove illegal aliens. That means immigration proceedings disrupted an estimated 122,500 lives in the U.S last year."

Watch the video below, and see more of Mignoni's films at her Web site, Facing Deportation.
