Adoption Battle Over 5-Year Old Boy Pits Missouri Couple Vs. Undocumented Immigrant

ABC News Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Brian Ross reports the following immigration story tonight on “ABC World News with Diane Sawyer” and on “Nightline."  A tug-of-war over a five-year-old boy is at the center of a national debate over parental rights and immigration, and a sign of what critics say is a growing trend in which immigrants are being deemed unfit parents because they unlawfully crossed the border.  A five-year-old boy's birth mother says that her son was taken from her against her will while she was in federal custody for an immigration-related crime, and hopes to regain custody in a trial that starts later this month.  The boy has been living with a Missouri family under a court order.
