Today’s recommended listening:
American Public Media’s The Story featured an interview with a woman who entered the country illegally, and was caught in an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raid.
Flor is from Mexico, but her children were born in the U.S. She’d rather leave voluntarily, but Flor has been told she can’t leave the state. She talks to Dick Gordon about the day of the raid, her hopes for the future, and how she and her husband are getting by financially while they wait.
One interesting moment: The part where she talks about all the money she used to spend at the stores in her town.
