Border Wedding Ceremony Highlights Immigration Battle

The Texas Tribune tells this bittersweet story of a wedding day for a Latino couple of mixed immigration statuses:

"The inches Maricruz Valtierra Zuniga stood from the United States border on Tuesday morning could be as close as the new bride ever gets to this country. In a wedding ceremony atop the international bridge, witnessed by family members, a U.S. congressman and Customs and Border Protection agents, Valtierra, a 25-year-old from Mexico, married her longtime boyfriend, Edgar Falcon, 27, a U.S. citizen who calls El Paso home. A mistake authorities say Valtierra made when she was a teenager — falsely claiming to be a U.S. citizen — means she is barred from ever entering this country, or establishing a life in teh United States with her husband."
