AZPM’s Fernanda Echavarri and Perla Trevizo of the Arizona Daily Star presents a special half-hour report on how immigration law and policy affects U.S. families. Echavarri and Trevizo spent four months with the de la Rosa family of Tucson, learning how each of the four U.S. citizen siblings has coped with separation from their mother Gloria. She was banned from the country for 10 years in 2009 when she applied for a green card after having lived in the U.S. illegally for years. The de la Rosas are among millions of U.S. citizen children affected by federal immigration law.
