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.
