PBS NewsHour has the latest on the immigration debate:

Will Congress have an immigration breakthrough or breakdown?

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell started Tuesday suggesting that there was no reason that lawmakers could not reach a bipartisan immigration solution this week, and threw his support behind a plan mirroring President Trump's. But as he moved to begin debate, Democrats said no, stressing the need for compromise. Lisa Desjardins joins Judy Woodruff to discuss the hurdles.

While the tug of war over immigration continues on Capitol Hill, One Detroit continues to cover the individuals whose lives are being directly affected by the current administration's policies.

Recently, One Detroit's Bill Kubota and Bridge Magazine's Chastity Pratt Dawsey traveled to Mexico to connect with real deportees and share their stories.

Below, check out the story of Daniel Arenas, co-founder of the organization Dream in Mexico, which helps those recently deported.
