Stories of Detention: Pedro’s Story

June 22, 2011

This narrative of Pedro’s Story, and his wife Emily’s blog, give a vivid and emotional account of the kind of injustice and horror the immigration system is wreaking on families. ┬áThe first link will take you to a clear account of the family’s journey through the court system (it has a happy ending for them); the second, to a blog written by the US citizen wife who was dragged through the nightmare–good source material for Renee and Estrella.

There is also a page (in both English and Spanish) of helpful advice compiled by Emily for families undergoing a similar trauma.
