This undocumented mom won’t be there when her kids get home
DENVER -- Like parents around the country, Jeanette Vizguerra kissed her kids last night and sent them to bed. She didn't know if she'd be there when they got home from school today. Vizguerra is an undocumented immigrant. She was due to check in Wednesday with Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Such check-ins are routine. But this one was different. The stay on her deportation order expired last week. It means she'd likely have exhausted all avenues to ward off separation from her American-born children, the youngest of whom is just 6.
