A Deported Father Wins a Long, Painful Fight to Keep His Kids

Seth Wessler of Colorlines.com tells the story of a deportee, Felipe Montes, and his fight to keep his U.S. citizen children. 

Such struggles may not be rare.  Last year, a Colorlines.com investigation estimated that there were least 5,000 kids in foster care whose parents were detained or deported. In the first six months of June 2011, the federal government deported 46,000 parents of U.S. citizen kids.

Only in America?
