The Day My Parents Were Deported

Many of us are familiar with Diane Guerrero. Star of the hit Netflix show Orange is the New Black, as well as CW’s Jane the Virgin and CBS' new Superior Donuts, Diane Guerrero has become a well-known face in Hollywood. But, despite her fame and accolades, there is something that lots of people might not know about her: aged just 14, Guerrero’s undocumented immigrant parents were deported to Colombia, leaving her an unaccompanied minor separated from her family in a different country. This is her story.https://artsandculture.google.com/theme/HgJSI8reum1AIg Image Credit: tvline.com

Guerrero’s story is a variation on what we’ve been reading in the news. She was not caged, and her parents were already long-term residents in the United States when they were arrested. But she, too, is a casualty of American immigration policy.

Her parents were deported before Trump was even a president, so why do ppl blame all this family separation now on Trump?
