This week in class we have to turn in a single from our final story. My story is on a woman named Mary Gomez. Mary's husband, an illegal immigrant, was deported last October. They have been married for 10 years. This left Mary alone to support their three children: Carlos, 7, Manuel, 6, and Maria, 5. They are not very well off, but love keeps them going.
In this picture Mary is on the phone with her husband. He is in Mexico staying with his mother. On Thursday he will be in Juárez, Mexico for another attempt at U.S. citizenship. The Gomez family cannot afford a lawyer, so they do all legal work themselves.
