Sep 19, 2012

Mon. 2/6 7pm: How deportation and its aftermath destroys Latino families in our community.

Nationally, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) processed 400,000 deportations last year, a historic record number. Among them, Ramón Eduardo Dorado Mendoza, a 19-year-old CNM student, raised in Albuquerque since he was a small child, was deported after being issued a traffic ticket on I-25 on his way to morning classes.  Ramón´s parents relate the events leading to his deportation and the consequences of deportation on Latino families in our community.
