Immigration and deportation is an issue that touches multiple communities in the Metro Detroit area.
For the past few weeks Detroit Journalism Cooperative Regional Editor Scott McCartney and Bill Kubota, along with Bridge Magazine’s Chastity Pratt Dawsey, have been following the progress of Southwest Detroiter Maria Garcia Juarez’s deportation order.
The day of the order came Friday, May 26, 2017 and despite the legal wrangling of several immigration lawyers, Juarez accepted her fate and boarded a plane to Mexico. She’ll be staying with an uncle she’s never met in a country she does not know.
